Some 16 years ago, at the library of the HCMC Banking Academy, Thoi Bao Kinh Te Saigon newspaper was one of the most important documents of reference for the students of the academy such as myself, Phuc said.

One day, while reading Thoi Bao Kinh Te Saigon newspaper, he suddenly learned about the 2030 Business Club and felt a deep respect for entrepreneurs. At that time, he knew he would join the club one day.

After joining the club and receiving the picture, the memories seemed to become a reality. As such, Phuc and the Phu Dong Group will treasure this picture.

In addition, Phuc expressed a big thank you to the Saigon Times Group and the Saigon Times Club, especially the 2030 Business Club, for awarding the firm this gift.

The picture comprising images of the 18-year journey of the 2030 Business Club and the images of seniors will help build up strength and garner motivation to overcome difficulties, Phuc said.

The picture depicts all the operations of the 2030 Business Club over the past 18 years. This is a valuable gift for the owners, said Pham Huu Chuong, deputy editor-in-chief of The Saigon Times Group.

“When we feel disoriented and confused about life and our occupation, we can look at the picture to find new inspiration to achieve more success and create new vitality for the firm. This is the biggest meaning of the picture,” he added.

Tran Duc Vinh, chairman of Tran Anh Group, said that as the firm, which is located in Long An Province, was far from HCMC, he was very pleased and lucky to be visited by representatives of the Saigon Times Group, the Saigon Times Club and its affiliated clubs. The picture and the visit will motivate Tran Anh Group to develop further in the future.

Since its launch in the market, the Thang Loi Central Hill project has drawn the attention of many customers and investors. Located at a prime location with convenient traffic systems, the Thang Loi Central Hill in Ben Luc District is expected to serve the living and working demands.

"After a visit to some businesses, I realized that they could understand each other well and open more opportunities for trade cooperation,” said Tran Thi Thuy Oanh, chairwoman of the Saigon Times Club, hoping that the connection between the Saigon Times Club’s affiliated clubs would emerge stronger in the coming months.

The 2030 Business Club, in coordination with the Saigon Times Real Estate Club, the Market Club and the Saigon Times Startup & Innovation Club, organized a program to celebrate Vietnam Entrepreneurs’ Day on October 13, under the theme, “Never Walk Alone”. The event attracted more than 500 members and non-members of the clubs.

Within the framework of the program, a trade cooperation exhibition and a photo exhibition were held. The organizer put up for auction a picture that was made from 2,030 smaller photos of the 2030 Business Club’s activities over the past 18 years.

Tran Anh Group, Thang Loi Group, An Cuong Wood Working JSC and Phu Dong Group jointly won the auction and bought the picture for VND1 billion.
