HCM City (VNA) – As many as 186 Vietnamese businesses received the certificate of Trusted Brand Index (TBI) at a ceremony held in Ho Chi Minh City on December 19.

The event was co-organised by the Vietnam Enterprises Institute (VEI) and Germany’s InterConformity Assessment and Certification Company.

According to the TBI Report 2015, 149 Vietnamese enterprises have made outstanding achievements in following the provisions of the TBI Management System and 37 others have proven themselves excellent in meeting the Sustainable Development System’s requirements.

The TBI was launched in 2004 with the aim to help businesses improve their capacity in quality management, establish their best relations with partners and customers, and raise their competitiveness through a third party’s independent surveys and assessments.

As of 2015, the programme has conducted surveys on and updated information for 12,000 businesses on the database of the Vietnam Enterprises Network, said VEI Vice President Tran Minh Khue.-VNA
