The Virginia Asian Chamber of Commerce helps connect business leaders across the state. 

My Lan Tran, the Virginia Asian Chamber of Commerce’s executive director was interviewed by Richmond Magazine for its January 2017 edition.   She cited a few examples of the types of minor differences that can affect business relationships. The Virginia Asian Chamber represents a variety of countries that all have their own values, cultures and languages. “We work to help the community and their entities to be aware of our existence, our positive contributions, workforce development, hiring opportunities and more,”  VACC leadership meets one-on-one with local economic development agencies, chambers and business leaders across Virginia and from other states.  “It’s hard work,” says Tran. “But businesses can’t grow unless we’re able to connect people.”
