HA NOI (VNS) – A high-quality workforce and technological advances were needed to carry the country forward in the current context of global integration, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung told a gathering of science and technology experts in Ha Noi yesterday.
The meeting took place ahead of the upcoming seventh National Congress of the Vietnam Union of Science and Technology Associations (VUSTA) for the 2015-2020 tenure that will bring together 600 delegates from across the country.
He hoped that VUSTA would continue to attract leading scientists, experts and managers working as advisors to the Party and State.
The PM asked VUSTA to motivate its members and their fellows to work on technological innovations that served socio-economy, culture and national defence-security.
VUSTA President Dang Vu Minh thanked the Party and State for their continued support, saying that the Government had issued important documents as a legal framework for the union to provide social feedback on major issues.
With chapters across the country's 63 cities and provinces, VUSTA members would follow the examples of their predecessors and dedicate their brainpower to national development, he promised. — VNS
