Vietnam ambassadors with benefits means:
Powerful political ties and sponsors
The case of the Vietnam Airlines hostesses arrested for drug smuggling earlier this year sheds light on a deeper issue entrenched in the country’s socio-political landscape. The selection process for positions within Vietnam Airlines, particularly those with diplomatic and ethical responsibilities, is not solely based on merit but rather influenced by powerful political ties and sponsors.
The hiring practices extend beyond professional qualifications, incorporating a thorough political selection process that considers familial and ideological affiliations. The pedigree of the Vietnam Airlines air crew is known to span up to three generations of communist party ties within their families. This stringent screening process is a testament to the extent of political influence in securing coveted positions.
Notably, the criteria for access to diplomatic education and positions within airlines are limited and reserved for a select few: party members, friends, and families hailing from the northern region of Vietnam, specifically from Hanoi. This geographic specificity further emphasizes the exclusivity of these opportunities, reinforcing the notion that political connections play a pivotal role in shaping career trajectories within the national airline. The implications of such practices extend beyond individual merit, contributing to an environment where personal and political ties can outweigh professional capabilities in crucial sectors of the nation’s infrastructure.
A privileged recruit by cooptation and fee payment
Recruitment within this privileged circle is often facilitated through cooptation and, in some cases, involves fee payments, further underscoring the exclusive nature of these opportunities. The educational prerequisites for individuals entering positions with diplomatic responsibilities and representing Vietnam on a global scale include a comprehensive study of Vietnam’s culture and history, with an emphasis on political science, diplomatic representation, cultural studies, ideology, and information curriculum.
