Mr. Nguyen Dinh Trung, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Hung Thinh Corporation
Sir, the Vietnamese business community is celebrating a special Vietnam Entrepreneurs’ Day. In the context that the country is facing many difficulties due to the impact of the epidemic, how do you think about the responsibility of an entrepreneur for economic development?
Any individual has a role, responsibility or it can be said to be a separate mission in society. As an entrepreneur, I think that the primary responsibility is economic responsibility.
However, this is a big problem during the epidemic season. What has to be done to ensure business operation, ensure jobs for more than 4,000 employees, ensure a journey to bring high quality and real-value real estate products to customers and optimization in a smooth and optimized manner.
By being flexible, responsive and always creative and innovative, Hung Thinh quickly adapted to the new context. We promoted digital transformation, applied technology and closely followed the philosophy of only researching and developing products that meet the needs of real home buyers, such as Bien Hoa Universe Complex (Bien Hoa, Dong Nai), Lavita Thuan An (Binh Duong), Moonlight Center Point (Binh Tan, Ho Chi Minh City) and the latest New Galaxy Nha Trang (Khanh Hoa).
Moonlight Center Point particularly is one of the first projects to be launched online and apply the process of digital signature, e-contract, etc., and was welcomed by the market beyond expectations.
These results demonstrate the Corporation's orientation, demonstrate the understanding and responsiveness, creativity and innovation that have been inherently "genome" of Hung Thinh. That's why someone thinks I'm a "man of the market".
Stepping out from the market, I understand too well the core issues of the real estate market. Hung Thinh has matured in challenges. And Covid-19 is a challenge that I believe we will firmly overcome.
What about the community, sir?
Taking right and full economic responsibility only is still not called sustainable development. The sustainable development of enterprises and the economy must be associated with the progress of the community - society. Therefore, for the past 20-year journey with Hung Thinh Corporation, we always keep the spirit of "paying it forward" to the community.
More than ever, it is the epidemic that is the time when this spirit must be expressed even more clearly. This is not just a responsibility but a mission. The mission of an entrepreneur is to bring good value, not only to the enterprise but also to all employees, to the community - society, for a prosperous and sustainable life.
The epidemic is not the main reason for Hung Thinh and I to think of developing sustainably and contributing to the community. For the past 20 years, we have always kept in mind that, with our internal resources, we must contribute back to society through meaningful activities. Those were activities to support people with difficult circumstances in the localities, scholarships for poor students who were fond of learning, and programs to foster sports talents... with total budget of more than VND 800 billion.
During Covid-19 alone, it’s estimated that we e spent nearly VND 200 billion on activities of joining hands to fight the epidemic, "empower" frontline forces, donate ambulances, medical equipment and supplies... and at the same time contribute to solving the problem of social security, helping the people in the Central region to overcome floods and natural disasters.
For officers and employees, even during the fourth outbreak in Ho Chi Minh City, We Are One Internal Fund was established, supporting staff and families who were F0 or whose income was affected by Covid-19. The quick response team also worked hard to support safety medicine bags, oxygen tanks, ambulances… and promptly responded to emergencies.
For the past two years, the epidemic has brought unprecedented challenges. In addition to efforts to maintain operation and actively contribute to social activities, Hung Thinh Corporation is also known as an enterprise with many policies to support customers and partners. Can you share more about this activity?
The impact of the epidemic spares nobody, nor do our customers. Understanding this, I decided to take a step back so that we can all move forward. For the past two years, we have continuously implemented the program of giving customers back 5% of the payment value from the second phase of the contract, to accompany customers during the epidemic season.
Similarly, we also supported reducing the rent of areas of commercial centers, even free rent for units operating in the field of education. Anyone is experiencing in a hard time, customers and partners right now are in need of sharing and encouragement.
Chance will be present in risks, I believe that if each of us, with our pure hearts, believes in sustainable development, if we all take a step back, we can move forward, but if anyone wants to take one more step to win their favor in difficult times, they cannot overcome difficulties.
