The Vietnamese Side was interested in the young scientists’ contest, the Young Vision Award, organized by Gazprom EP International in cooperation with Wintershall for the past 6 years.

Russia and Vietnam have a lot in common, but, of course, there are some differences, for example, in social and cultural aspects. For this reason, bilateral experience exchange in HR management is essential, considering the international focus of our company”, said Alexander Nikiforov, Deputy Managing Director for HR & Legal of Gazprom EP International.
