HA NOI (VNS)— Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc received Professor Thomas Vallely, advisor of Harvard's Viet Nam Programme, in Ha Noi yesterday. He expressed hope that Vallely would continue helping to consolidate Viet Nam -US co-operation, especially in education.

He hailed the contributions of Prof. Vallely as well as the staff of the Viet Nam Executive Leadership Programme (VELP), a collaborative initiative of the Vietnamese Government, the United Nations Development Programme and the Viet Nam Programme at Harvard's Kennedy School.

The VELP has created a forum for Vietnamese senior policymakers as well as business leaders to hold dialogues based on a foundation of practical research on policy challenges that Viet Nam and the world face, he said.

Professor Vallely spoke highly of Viet Nam's efforts to preserve cultural values as well as the country's socio-economic development over the past years.

He said he would try his best to enhance the quality of Vietnamese teaching at US universities, contributing to boosting education partnerships between the two countries.

Launched in 1988, the Viet Nam Programme aims to study Viet Nam's socio-economic development using a multifaceted approach that combines research, teaching and policy analysis. — VNS
