Influenced by COVID -19 epidemic, this year’s AGM was held in 2 forms, directly and indirectly (online). Via online, Nafoods connected with some Board of Directors members who are in America and other remote shareholders easily. This is a new form of organization, the first time it has been deployed, but with careful preparation. The entire conference proceedings are uninterrupted, ensuring the quality of content spoken. In addition, the Organizing Committee also took steps to prevent the spread of Covid-19 epidemic, such as body temperature check and hand sanitizing supervision.
