We want to thank Richmond Times-Dispatch for sharing our exciting news. VACC has partnered up with both the India and China chambers of commerce to push for trade investments here and overseas. 

During the Gala  there was a very special signing ceremony of a Memorandum of Understanding between the National US-India Chamber of Commerce, the Washington-China Chamber of Commerce, and the Virginia Asian Chamber of Commerce (VACC).  This was signed to help VACC expand our trade and investment projects and activities on behalf of businesses based in Virginia, China, India, and other nations and best markets for trade and investments for Virginia

Tinh Phan, the Virginia Asian Chamber’s chairman says it perfectly in this article, “It’s our responsibility to bring more investment and business opportunities, and employment opportunities for our people.”
