On 17th May 2021: Dai-ichi Life Insurance (Cambodia) PLC. and Ho Chi Minh City University of Economics and Finance (UEF) – one of the most prestigious universities in Vietnam signed an MoU to enter into a long-term partnership to provide unique benefits to the life insurer’s policyholders and the University.
Under this partnership, Dai-ichi Life Cambodia’s policyholders will enjoy priority enrolment right for their children to study at the University. This will enable Cambodian parents to reduce the cost of higher education for their children whilst being assured that they still receive a quality education from a recognized educational institution. The parents further enjoy an option to later transfer their children to study at selective UK universities should they choose to.
The signing ceremony is held online to ensure public safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. Attending this ceremony include representatives from the Company: Mr. Allen Thai - the CEO, Mr. Kamata Daisuke – the Deputy CEO, Mr. Netr Pho - the Chief Agency Officer, and Mr. Lay Sithy – the General Manager of Partnerships. From the University, the representatives include Mr. Do Quoc Anh – Vice Chairman of University Management Council, Dr. Nguyen Thanh Giang – the President of UEF, and Dr. Do Huu Nguyen Loc – the Vice President of UEF.
In addition to the priority enrolment programme, both the life insurer and the University will also collaborate in student exchange programmes to promote the development of joint studies, research and training activities, and other educational programmes of mutual interest.
The HCMC UEF attaches great emphasis on promoting cross-border study in the Region. Therefore, this partnership helps create favorable conditions for Cambodian students to access regional as well as international universities at affordable cost and within close proximity.
Speaking at the online ceremony, Mr. Allen Thai - the CEO of Dai-ichi Life Cambodia said: “We are very proud to collaborate with the HCMC UEF to provide this unique benefit to our customers.

Speaking at the online ceremony, Dr. Bruce Loc Do – Vice President of UEF said: “Ho Chi Minh University of Economics and Finance (UEF) is one of the few higher education institutions in Vietnam that provides students with an English learning environment and offers degree programmes in partnership with British and American Universities.
Through the Priority Enrollment Programme between the HCMC UEF and Dai-ichi Life Insurance (Cambodia) PLC, Cambodian students are able to realize their dreams to study abroad by getting access to UK education quality at an affordable cost. Students can choose to pursue a Bachelor's Degree with the University of Gloucestershire or Leeds Trinity University in Vietnam, with tuition fees of only a quarter of what they have to spend in the UK.
