APEC, Hawaii and Vietnam

UH President Greenwood addressing APEC workshop in Hanoi

In addition to meeting alumni and addressing preliminary meetings and workshops to the APEC summit in Honolulu next month, my trip to Vietnam has afforded opportunities to remind our Vietnamese hosts of Hawaiʻi’s unparalleled position bridging East and West, both culturally and geographically. Above, I am addressing an APEC workshop in Hanoi. Below, Shidler College of Business Professor Tung Bui showed UH Foundation President Donna Vuchinich and me around the college’s popular Vietnam Executive MBA program, which was featured recently in Mālamalama magazine.

Discussing collaboration with Hue University

We have now moved to Hue. Here Professor Tung Bui and I are meeting with the distinguished President Nyugen Van Toan. We also visited with Professor Chien who leads their Learning Center and with a graduate of our Vietnam EMBA program who is an executive in the center.

After an excellent discussion about possible future collaborations in international affairs we exchanged gifts. We were well hosted by these excellent colleagues.

Hue is an ancient Vietnam city with a national heritage site, the Citadel (Hue Imperial City). In the afternoon we visited both the Citadel and the Royal Tombs of Hue.
