Biographical Note

Nguyen Xuan Phong, as South Vietnamese, was educated in Paris, London and Oxford University as an economist and began his career in private industry in SAigon in 1960. From 1965 to 1975, he served in cabinet-level functions in the Saigon government, and was Minister-of-State in Charge of Negotiations at the Paris peace talks in April 1975 when South Vietnam's political regime collapsed. He returned to Saigon five days before its occupation by North Vietnamese forces, and was imprisoned for reeducation until 1980 in North Vietnam.
