The Vietnam Top 500 CEO Golf Championship (VCG500) will be organized for the first time in Hà Nội later this month.
The tournament will be jointly organised by the Vietnamnet online newspaper, the Vietnam Report Company, the Michael Dukakis Institute for Leadership and Innovation and the Hà Nội Golf Academy.
According to the organisers, the event is expected to give CEOs a chance to meet, talk, share and find chances to cooperate with each other.
"It has been the demand of the CEOs to have a sports competition. Vietnamnet, which has not been involved in any golf event before, wants to be a bridge connecting leaders of enterprises. We believe it will be a successful tournament," said Phạm Anh Tuấn, editor-in-chief of Vietnamnet and head of the VCG500 organising board.
The VCG500 is expected to lure more than 100 golfers on January 20 at the Vinpearl Golf Hải Phòng. They will be divided into three groups.
The organisers will also introduce the Michael Dukakis Institute Fellowship for the best CEOs in the fields of business, culture, science and sports, during the event.
