LOS ANGELES, CA and HO CHI MINH CITY, VIETNAM -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 1, 2007 -- Providential Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: PRVH) (German Stock Exchanges: PR7, WKN 935160), a company providing international advisory services specializing in mergers and acquisition and investing on the rapidly growing economies in Vietnam and Asia, will hold a seminar with the Vietnamese Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Feb. 5, 2007 in Ha Noi for Vietnam-based companies seeking to go public and raise capital in the United States. The seminar takes place 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Vietnamese Chamber of Commerce and Industry, 9 Dao Duy Anh Street, Ha Noi, Vietnam.
