THE CHAIRMAN & THE FOUNDER
Mr. Phu TRAN VAN is a trailblazer, a man of powerful ideas and beliefs. His book, “Relaunch France and Europe – The Voluntary Democracy”, published by Cherche – Midi, was awarded the prestigious CRESUS Prize in 2011 at the French National Assembly. In his book, Mr. Phu TRAN VAN presented his ideas on breaking the barriers that sclerose and corrupt the society today to build inside it the collective commitment, that is the willingness of Mr. Phu TRAN VAN, who built from nothing and on this basic, an industrial group employing over 15,000 members throughout the world. Mr. Phu TRAN VAN is the exemplary proof to demonstrate that different ways are possible, that a ‘no walls’ social capitalism can develop, and, more than that, is the future of the society.
Mr. Phu TRAN VAN lived his adolescence and young age in a Vietnam at war. It was during this period, among the deaths and ordeals, that he learned from his parents the notions of sharing, altruism, courage and demanding perseverance. Many years later, without forgetting the demand for economic profitability that an enterprise should be bound to, he would like, by his book, transmit to others his solution for a better world.
Mr. Phu TRAN VAN, French of Vietnamese origin, has been the Chairman – Founder for more than thirty years now of a leading group operating in the International Lingerie Industry.
Situated in the south of France, the ancient Chateau Forge Du Roy is the Headquarter of Foundation B’Lao, as well as the Resourcing Center of Group Financière B’Lao (formely Corèle International) and our partners. Especially, this is also where the International Award event takes place, once every 3 years, starting from 2022. These awards will be given to exceptional innovations with global influence to lifetime education – what Foundation B’Lao has always been committing to. The Foundation B’Lao pioneers to encourage humanity’s creativity in global connection for lifetime education and training development, as well as contributing practical values to the society. This is what the Foundation B’Lao endeavours to achieve.
Created in France in January 2017 by Mr. Phu TRAN VAN, Chairman – Founder of Group Financière B’Lao, as a milestone of social responsibility where the company is governed by those who build it, the Foundation promotes and develops lifetime education that conveys the Core Values of life in that it believes:
Mr. Phu TRAN VAN is convinced, from his observation in life, that social performance, developed by a system of Core Values is at the root of the economic performance and that these two performances feed each other, being the two complementary forces of the same ambition.
The pioneered engagement in social responsibility of the Foundation B’Lao through lifetime education has begun with the opening of the first B’Lao Kindergarten in August, 2017 in Phong Dien, Thua Thien Hue, Vietnam, next to Group Scavi’s biggest Industrial Center. The kindergarten welcomes about 200 children from 18 months up to 5 years old across 8 classes, with 20 teachers working full time. In the long run, the kindergarten will be able to comfortably accommodate 600 children.
The Foundation B’Lao will expand the scope of its educational projects in every location where the Group is operating. In Northern France, with its leading role, the Foundation B’Lao will connect with public authorities and industry partners to develop educational projects in the region. In Vietnam, the Foundation B’Lao will open green campuses offering holistic education programs, spanning from preschool to university, as well as continuous and vocational education for the underemployed.
