The ceremony of the Vietnam Women's Award 2020 was held on the 90th anniversary of the establishment of the Vietnam Women's Union and Vietnam Women's Day on October 20, with the participation of many representatives of leaders of the Party, State, ministries, central agencies, organizations, and Women's Unions of some cities and provinces.
Madame Nga was the only business representative to be honored at the event, for her outstanding contributions in many fields. For many years she has led a group with nearly 22,000 employees to make their mark across many business fields. Madame Nga is also one of the few women who dared to pioneer particularly important projects for the country such as the 1/500 master plan on both sides of the Nhat Tan-Noi Bai axis, and the successful implementation of the North Hanoi Smart City project. These ventures and more are helping to create momentum for the country's socioeconomic development.
In addition, Madame Nga pays great attention to social responsibility and charity activities. During the Covid-19 pandemic, she has contributed more than VND7 billion ($304,000) in various forms, such as giving free masks to schoolchildren in Hanoi, distributing food to people in need, and hundreds of other volunteer activities held regularly across the country.
