Vietnam hopes the Australian House of Representatives under the leadership of Speaker Anna Burke will pave the way for Australian businesses to pour investment into Vietnam and Ho Chi Minh City in particular.
A Vietnamese business woman has become the owner of many memorabilias of the King of pop Michael Jackson, who passed away in 2009 at the age of 50.
The collection was given to Phan Phuong Thanh Thao, chairwoman of Khang Thong Corporation, owner of a project of a five-star hotel and amusement park called "Happyland” in the southern province of Long An, by the legendary singer’s father Joseph Jackson, also an investor in the project.
The memorabilias include a manuscript of the famous song “We are the world” with the seal of the Jackson’s family and the autographs of many renowned singers who sang the song with him like Diana Ross, Cyndi Lauper and Stevie Wonder.
The collection also consists of a manuscript of the “Black or White” song written in 1991 in Michael Jackson’s own handwriting, a diamond-studded belt, and a photo book of the singer’s life.
In February this year, Joseph Jackson came to Vietnam to sign the contract for the project.
Thao later made a 4-day visit to Michael Jackson’s villa in the US under the invitation of Joseph Jackson.
According to the late singer’s father, his family presented Michael’s memorabilias to only 12 persons in the world.
