Alongside prominent Vietnamese tech and business leaders based in the United States, Ms. Linh Dao Smooke is to provide strategic insights to help shape Vietnam's near-term policies in the new digital economy in response to the US-Vietnam comprehensive strategic partnership following President Joe Biden's recent visit to Vietnam.

Among the key focal points of this partnership is technology transfer, with a notable emphasis on the software, AI, and computing sectors. Consequently, Prime Minister Chinh is keen on harnessing the wisdom of tech leaders of Vietnamese descent in the US to chart a course for Vietnam's future in these tech-driven industries.

Hosted by VietChallenge, an accelerator for Vietnamese startups, the meetings coincide with Prime Minister Chinh's visit to the United States to attend the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Summit in NYC. Other presenters at this private event are Clearview AI CEO Ton That Hoan, IBM Research Scientist Nam Nguyen, Republic CEO Kendrick Nguyen, and bestselling author / Arsenal Capital Partner John Mattison.

"I'm honored to join this event. Specifically, I'm curious about Prime Minster Chinh and Minister Dung's plan to significantly train up the Vietnamese workforce in the semiconductor business. It all starts with education, in my opinion", said Ms. Linh Dao Smooke in preparation for the event.
