Speaker: Le Hong Minh

Le Hong Minh

Mr. Minh is the chairman and chief executive officer of VNG Corporation, a leading internet and social media company in Vietnam. Established in 2004, VNG has grown from a five person startup to the largest domestic web portal in Vietnam and biggest video game distributor. The company offers a comprehensive package of online entertainment products such as music, games, video sharing, and news, as well as an online social media community and e-commerce to approximately 20 million Vietnamese subscribers.

Mr. Minh is a strong believer in the power of the internet to connect Vietnamese people together in ways unforeseen just a few years ago. As the country expands economically and internet usage rates expand, VNG will look to create even more value-added services and products that cater towards enhancing Vietnamese people’s lives both online and off.

Mr. Minh practices what his company advocates, given he is an avid internet content consumer and even spends a few hours each day engaged in online gaming as a hobby. He obtained the bachelor of business and banking finance from the Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.
