In addition to business activities, Chairman Nguyen Dinh Trung also devoted to activities for the community throughout the provinces and cities nationwide with the spirit of "An enterprise must contribute to the society by sharing business profits to develop the homeland in a more even manner. That is also my definition of a sustainable enterprise.” For the past 20 years, he and Hung Thinh Corporation have spent more than VND 800 billion for charity and humanitarian activities for the community.
Especially in 2020 - 2021, when Covid-19 broke out, Hung Thinh is one of the enterprises that has been active and ready to contribute human and material resources to repel the epidemic with the whole country. Nearly VND 200 billion has been donated by Hung Thinh through practical actions, such as: contributing to the Government's Covid-19 vaccine fund, donating medical equipment and testing kits, ambulances for hospitals, funding for Covid-19 drug research program, supporting the meals for the poor and medical staff, etc. in all provinces and cities nationwide such as Ho Chi Minh City, Lam Dong, Binh Dinh, Binh Duong, Dong Nai, Ba Ria - Vung Tau...
“For me, those who has gone through the Covid-19 epidemic will be likened to "living witnesses of the history", we must thoroughly grasp it and be very responsible to it. For recent times, every enterprise has faced difficulties, but if we are not united, the immediate difficulties will never end. Therefore, for me and Hung Thinh, we understand that enterprises need to have responsibilities and obligations to society When the Covid-19 epidemic occurs, we work together with the government and people with our own hearts, because there are many more miserable fates than us and we need to do it," Chairman Nguyen Dinh Trung shared when receiving the award of Inspiring Entrepreneur 2021.
Not only being active in community activities, during the difficult period due to the Covid-19 epidemic, Mr. Nguyen Dinh Trung and the Board of Directors always pay attention to officers and employees of the Corporation, by ensuring 100% of salaries for them, establishing a team to provide medical support to the families of the infected officers and employees… “Many employees of the Corporation texted me to propose a salary reduction for sharing with the Corporation. I thank all for that. However, I decide not to reduce their salary. I still pay them in full and I hope they will spend a part of their salary that they have applied for a reduction on helping their family or those in difficult circumstances that they think such people need help. That's also the way they help the Corporation bring the culture of sharing to others," Mr. Nguyen Dinh Trung said at a meeting with all officers and employees in July 2021.
It can be said that the title of Inspiring Entrepreneur 2021 further affirms the capability of Chairman Nguyen Dinh Trung in an extremely difficult period, he still maintains the Corporation's activities, ensures a full salary for officers, employees... and actively contributes more and more to the community and society with the desire not to leave anyone behind.
