He started as a Desk Officer at the Directorate of State Protocol, where he worked for four years (1997-2001) before being posted in Algeria, where he worked at the Vietnamese Embassy with the rank of Second and First Secretary (2001-2005).

Following the experience in North Africa, Mr. Pham returned to Hanoi, where joined the Ministry’s Organization and Personnel Department.
