    Dear Dr. Roy J Nirschel,
    I’m a Da Nang’s citizen, working in a IT’s system intergrated (SI) name One Corp. This morning while on the way to Hoi An, I passed to the site where you are building your campus and first time see the design of AUV’s campus there. It’s attracted me so much but a little sad that I don’t know why it is stoping construction.
    But I though that perhaps this is a chance for me to coordinate with your corporate in provide the Information Technology and Telecommunication system to your project here if you are looking for a contractor on this. We have alot of experiences to work with universities and hospitality segments, some of project we had coordinated are:
    – Education: RMIT (Sai gon), HCMC University, Can Tho University, …
    – Hospitality: Park Hyatt Sai Gon, Hyatt Da Nang Regency, Intercontinental Da Nang, The Nam Hai resort, Life style Da Nang, …
    And many other large projects
    My company have branch in HCM city at address: 226 Khanh Hoi, district 4 and representative office in Da nang. I’m looking forward to meet you whenever you come back to Da nang and we will have opportunities to talk much about your project here, that is a very honor of me.

    Your sincerely,
    Nguyen Trong Nguyen

      I really appreciate your comments. As you know, the multiple levels of licensing required in Vietnam causes projects, such as ours, to take longer than one would hope.
      Look forward to keeping you posted as we move forward,

    Dear Dr. Roy Nirschel,
    It’s very happy to received your reply, multiple levels of license is the style of Vietnamese government that make us lose many oppotunities to moving forward. But hope your professional back office will get it all.
    Wish you much happiness and healthy and hope to meet you in Da Nang next time you come back to my beautiful city.

    Your sincerely,

    Hi Dr. Nirshel,

    My name is Dang Nguyen from RMIT University Vietnam. I am working on a research project looking at interviewing seasoned educators around Vietnam and would like to invite you to participate. I have been trying to get your contact details to approach you on a more formal basis, but unfortunately without success. I would be grateful if we could communicate further on the current project.

    Thank you,
    Dang Nguyen

    Dr. Nirschel,

    I recently came across your article “Vietnam’s class war” on the American Interest and am very impressed with the articulation of the past, the present, and the future of Vietnam’s education and many other things in it. As a Vietnam-born and an American-educated person myself, I could confirm that the “capitalists won the argument”. I know that you have a busy schedule, but just by any chance, if you stop by Ha Noi, and have a few free minutes to talk, I’d love to ask for those minutes.

    Thank you and have a good year.
