Independent Consultant


Lan spent the past 10 years working to improve the quality of local economic governance and to empower the voice of the private sector in Vietnam, through the Provincial Competitiveness Index (PCI), a policy advocacy tool that measures the performance of provincial governments in 63 cities and provinces. She worked to make the PCI more reliable and trusted by improving the quality of data collection and by making its methodology and dataset accessible to more stakeholders. Through her work, approximately 55,000 government leaders have been informed on responsive and accountable governance and PCI is one of the most widely used policy tools in the country.
