The Korea Chamber of Business in Vietnam (KORCHAM) held "The Night of CSR (corporate social responsibility) by RoK Enterprises" and the scholarship presentation ceremony entitled "Together We Share" on December 17, with the aim of providing support for Vietnamese students and demonstrating social responsibilities of RoK companies.

The event is held annually to encourage RoK companies to carry out activities for the development of Vietnamese society, thus enhancing the bilateral cooperation of both countries.

Scholarship winners are students recommended by the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA), the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Ministry of Planning and Investment, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, and other agencies which have provided considerable support for the operations of RoK firms in Vietnam.

Addressing the ceremony, Deputy Minister of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs Doan Mau Diep spoke highly of social activities that RoK companies have carried out in Vietnam, noting that RoK firms have actively assisted the MOLISA in vocational training and creating more job opportunities for Vietnamese labourers.

Diep also affirmed Vietnam's commitments in continuing to advocate RoK firms in maintaining and boosting their long-term business in Vietnam.

Representatives from KORCHAM said that it will always stand side by side with RoK companies to build a better investment environment and duplicate SCR activities to support Vietnamese students for the prosperous future of Vietnam.
