VGP – Truong Thi Le Khanh, Founder and Chairwoman of Vinh Hoan JSC, and Nguyen Bach Diep - Chairwoman of FPT Retail are named among the top 25 most powerful businesswomen in Asia in 2020 by Forbes.

Forbes wrote about Truong Thi Le Khanh: "Over the past 23 years, Khanh has built her listed company into Viet Nam’s largest seafood firm by market capitalization." 

Last year Khanh’s firm was also the best performer in the country’s seafood industry, with US$50 million net profit on US$340 million revenue.

She has more than 6,000 employees and six processing plants, Forbes wrote, adding that to promote the growth, Khanh has planned to expand locally and through partnerships in Europe.

Meanwhile, Nguyen Bach Diep has helped build the company into Viet Nam’s second-largest electronics retailer by numbers of outlets, with more than 630 stores nationwide, since joining FPT Retail eight years ago and becoming chairwoman in 2017. 

In 2017, Diep added pharmaceutical retailing with the purchase of a majority stake in the Long Chau drugstore chain and expanded it from four stores to roughly 160. To capture rising demand during the pandemic, FPT Retail plans to open 60 more drugstores by the end of the year.

Last year, Vietjet CEO Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao and NutiFood CEO Tran Thi Le were also included in the list of top 25 Asian “Power Businesswomen”./.
