HA NOI (VNS) — Vice President Nguyen Thi Doan said yesterday that the Party and State always encourage young people to conduct scientific research and develop useful projects for the country's development.
She made the statement at a meeting with 80 outstanding representatives in science research who received the country's Golden Globe Awards since 2003.
In the past ten years, some 105 young people received the awards, of which 85 were awarded for their achievements in information technology and telecommunications, 9 in medical technology, 6 in environmental technology and 5 in biological technology.
The Ministry of Science and Technology and Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee set up the Golden Globe Awards and the Reward for the Brightest Female Student in Information Technology in 2003.
Initially, the award was only given to outstanding individuals in information technology. Since 2011, however, the Golden Globes have been presented to outstanding young individuals in 4 fields: information technology, pharmacy and medical technology, biological technology and environmental technology.
While praising the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee and the Ministry of Science and Technology for the initiative, the Vice President asked for the expansion of the award to draw the participation of even more young people. — VNS
