VUKN Awards- Formal Citations – David Priestley

DSC05417‘David Priestley was until recently Managing Director of Rolls Royce International in Vietnam. Under his leadership, RR was an active supporter of the bilateral relationship, whether through the funding of scholarships at the UK-Vietnam Research Institute in Danang, or through the strong support David gave to the British Government’s business integrity initiative in Vietnam, resulting in a major anti-corruption event during David Cameron’s visit last July. That visit also saw the signing of a major agreement between RR and Vietnam Airlines.During his long stay in Vietnam David was also the senior Hanoi-based Board member of the British Business Group Vietnam (BBGV), and was much involved in helping to turn it into a more professional chamber with an active Business Centre. Now back in the UK, he continues to support the BBGV.’
