Nguyen Thai Hai Van will commence her role as Vietnam CEO of Singapore-based ride-hailing giant Grab on February 1.
Overcoming human resources problems, understanding local cultures and finding reliable partners are needed for Vietnamese start-ups to “go global,” the CEO of Grab Financial Group Vietnam Nguyen Tuan Anh has said.
Despite it being peak earnings time, many GrabBike drivers are refusing to pick up or drop night-time passengers in deserted areas.
Ride-hailing firm Grab Vietnam insists that its GrabTaxi service is legally allowed to operate nationwide.
Grab has explained why the company decided to increase the percentage it took from the fares of GrabBike and GrabExpress services since the beginning of this year.
More than 20,000 Vietnamese men and women have registered to work as motorbike taxi drivers for Uber, a representative of the ride hailing company said recently.
With the central Vietnamese city of Danang consistently saying no to Grab, an app-based taxi service, a representative of the Singapore startup has sought help from Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc.
