International Study Trip
Day one of our international study trip was packed with visits including: the Center for Social Initiatives Promotion (CSIP), Hanoi University of Mining and Geology (HUMG), and Toong, a local coworking space.
Day two of our international study trip featured visits to the Hanoi Hilton and Forum with AMCHAM
Today we headed to visit the offices of Mobivi and VILAF. It was our first experience in Ho Chi Minh City, where, according to our guide, eight million people live and approximately four million bikes are used for commuting. We got to taste first hand crossing the city’s busy streets.
We arrived at Mundhipharma’s office at 8:30 a.m. Most of us felt the jet lag had finally gone away, and we were eager to learn about a company that was introducing a new product to the market. We walked into the Mundhipharma office, and the country manager, Nguyen Phuong, briefed us on the company and his staff. His 15-person team of experienced doctors and managers sat in a small office of about 20 desks on the sixth floor. The feng shui eased the feeling of the cramped hallways.
