VietPro (Vietnamese professionals in the UK) was established following the merger of two Vietnamese Facebook groups with a combined membership of around 650. The group was launched in the presence of representatives from the Vietnamese Embassy and high-profile business leaders on 23 Jan 2010 in London.
Our mission is to become a hub for professional networking and career opportunities. With an increasing number of talented Vietnamese who graduate from UK universities and subsequently work in various professions both in the UK and in Vietnam, we believe VietPro is a fast-growing community that is diverse and ambitious.
