Vietnam’s Coffee Queen Abdicates Trung Nguyen Throne


Le Hoang Diep Thao has transferred all shares in the Trung Nguyen empire she ran with her ex-husband, pursuant to their final divorce ruling.

Thao, former deputy director of Trung Nguyen Group (TNG), is no longer on the company’s list of shareholders, TNG announced in a statement Wednesday.
