Anthony Salzman, chairman of V-TRAC, will be awarded the friendship medal by President Nguyen Minh Triet for his efforts to promote investment in Vietnam at a ceremony held Friday.

Salzman was among the first Americans to start conducting business in Vietnam in 1993. The medal also recognizes his work in dismantling the US trade embargo against Vietnam in 1994 and promoting the Bilateral Trade Agreement between the US and Vietnam in 2001.

In addition to the Friendship Medal, the Hanoi People's Committee has awarded Salzman with the Capital Development Medal for contributions to the city's economic progress.
