Founder, Executive Director

Le Dong Hai Nguyen is a Vietnamese economist, social activist, and the Founder and Chairman of the Global Association of Economics Education (GAEE). He was the first Vietnamese and the first person under 18 years of age to be elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

A graduate student at Georgetown University School of Foreign Service, Hai developed a strong passion for economics since his high school years and has worked tirelessly to make the subject more accessible to his peers. He played a key role in GAEE’s expansion from a regional collective of economics clubs into a global NGO that spans ten countries, and was dubbed “the 17-year-old democratizer of economics education” by Yahoo. He was named one of the 36 Young Economist of the Year honorees by the Royal Economic Society in 2019.

He is currently serving as Chairman of the Board of Trustees on a non-executive capacity. Contact or learn more about Hai via his Website or LinkedIn.
