“Quite extraordinary, 25 years.
If I recall your company was founded back in the early 90s as the first privately held communications and media company in Vietnam and what you’ve achieved since then is quite extraordinary. These days, companies don’t last many years but for you to continue reinventing yourself over these 25 years and become, from what I understand, the largest and most progressive media company with many advisory roles and many products and really a very progressive company in the modern world is quite an extraordinary feat in a country, of course, that’s doing so well. I’m so sorry I can’t be there with you today Thanh to join you at this anniversary but let me just say how proud we are about everything you’ve achieved and how much more you’re going to do. I look forward to seeing you soon and wish you, your colleagues and the whole team at DatVietVAC the very best on this very special occasion.
Wishing you all the best,”

You’ve been a real pioneer in the media in Vietnam and now today you’re already moving ahead of us, bringing 4.0 media entertainment and really all of us, we admire you. You’re a role model for your friends, for your colleagues and for your family and I wish you all the best for this celebration.

From a clip by the artist Tran Thanh to congratulate DatVietVAC
“We have been going for 25 years. Now, this may seem like a very long journey but for those who are creative and who look ahead, like us, the time can fly by. 25 years of DatVietVAC means 25 years of crazy. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, mankind is always crazy but that’s the problem: only crazy people can find the crazy answers to crazy problems. This sort of crazy makes zeroes and heroes, success and failure. DatVietVAC has always chosen CRAZY. It has chosen to be a pioneer, to be reckless and daring. Nobody thought that a TV show could be improvised without a script like ‘Thank God You Are Here’. Nobody thought a reality TV show could let you look at a person and try to determine their gender like ‘Who are they?’. And nobody thought a quiz show just based on answering quickly could be the top trending show, but we have ‘The Lightning Quiz’ and the ‘The Lightning Quiz Kids’. All these things come from crazy ideas. And you ask if I’m proud to be on that road? I’m more than proud of myself, I’m proud of us, on that road together with DatVietVAC. It might not be the full 25 years, but I contributed my youth to DatVietVAC. In Vietnam, the older generations say ‘if you want to get rich on TV, you need to be ready to risk it for the biscuit’. Happy 25th birthday DatVietVAC. I love you.”

25 Years of Crazy – 25 years beyond the usual limits – 25 years of Excellence – No compromise – Reaching for the extraordinary
It has been 25 Years of Crazy; 25 years of pushing boundaries; 25 years of excellence; 25 years without compromise and a desire to reach the extraordinary.
None of this could have been done without the crazy people who chose to follow these dreams at all costs. They make up the DatVietVAC of today; a DatVietVAC that is crazy, but also determined to change the way we think about media and entertainment, one breakthrough after another.
