Intel Vietnam has been named one of 13 finalists worldwide for the US Secretary of State’s prestigious 2011 Award for Corporate Excellence (ACE).

These companies were chosen from 62 businesses nominated by US ambassadors around the world.

Intel Vietnam was selected for its public-private partnership programmes that promote education reform and skilled workforce development, creating increased opportunities for women in the sciences, and raising awareness of environmental issues as well as voluntary activities.

The 2011 ACE winners will be announced at a ceremony to be hosted by the US Secretary of State later this year.

The Secretary of State has awarded the ACE since 1999 to recognise American companies which are leaders in socially responsible activities and contribute to the overall growth and development of the local economy in which they work./.
