Mr. Thanh Nguyen is one of public opinion influencers in Viet Nam, and he supports the three pillars that he believes Viet Nam needs for a sustainable future: rule of law, market economy, and civil society development. To realize his contribution to the reforms of the country, he founded Vietnam Institute for Economic and Policy Research (VEPR) in 2008, working intensively and actively on the current fundamental issues of Viet Nam. He joined the Economic Advisory Group of the Prime Minister’s term of 2011-2016 with his perspectives on reforming the State-Owned Enterprise Sector and enhancing the international integration of the country. He actively addresses and debates current economic and social issues on various forums including the national TV channels, policy forums and publications. He founded Vietnam Scholar Network in 2014, joined Eisenhower Fellows in 2015, and has been member of different networks in Viet Nam. He supported different young groups (many of them are my former students) to encourage the civil society development.
