HCM CITY — The Saigon Thương Tín Commercial Joint Stock Bank (Sacombank) won the Corporate Excellence Award at the 2020 Asia Pacific Enterprise Awards for its outstanding achievements in business while also fulfilling its social responsibilities.
Besides having effective business strategies in each development period, the bank also always combines economic goals with environmental - social ones to ensure harmonisation of stakeholders’ interests.
At the awards ceremony in HCM City last week, Nguyễn Đức Thạch Diễm, the bank’s CEO and a member of the board of directors, was also honoured with the Master Entrepreneur Award in Asia Pacific.
Diễm has put in 18 years of hard and dedicated work at Sacombank.

The leading Asia Pacific Enterprise Awards are given away by Enterprise Asia to recognise outstanding entrepreneurs and organisations for their performance and tenacity in developing successful businesses.
Launched in 2006, the awards are held in 14 countries and considered the most prestigious ones in Asia. This was the fourth year they were held in Việt Nam.
On October 22 Sacombank was named among the 500 most profitable enterprises in Việt Nam (Profit 500) by Việt Nam Report JSC. It was for a fourth consecutive year the bank made it to the list.
