At the training session, the two VILAF speakers provided in-depth training, ensuring that the legal requirements and the most effective ways to prevent corruption and maintain compliance were clearly understood. The training session covered a wide variety of topics, including the FCPA, Vietnam’s anti-corruption regulations, and internal controls. Being interactive with case studies, the training session not only provided plain theory but also helped employees understand how to identify and prevent potential cases of corruption.

“Coteccons’ commitment to compliance and ethical business practices is commendable, and we are honored to have had the opportunity to work with them and others in the business community in Vietnam to promote compliance, making Vietnam a better place to do business in a professional manner,” shared Esko Cate.

Mr. Duong Trong Nghia, Lego Project Manager, shared: “I feel extremely proud of the journey we have gone through. We, the ones who carry the Coteccons DNA, have been upholding the highest standards of ethics and integrity in all of our business activities. And Coteccons will accompany the investors to create the sixth LEGO factory in the world, which will be a carbon-neutral factory from the very beginning when it opens in 2024, working together towards being environmentally friendly and sustainable. That is the highest mission.”

Coteccons believes that honesty and integrity are the foundation of everything we do. Therefore, we always take the initiative to maintain compliance, thereby promoting fair and transparent business activities.

Promoting diversity, equality, and inclusion (DEI) is a specific action of commitment to sustainable development in which the human element is the key to all actions, not only helping to build the employer’s branding but also creating high-quality human resources to increase
