HA NOI (VNS) — Over 100 Vietnamese and Swedish education managers and experts shared experience on public policy-management in university education yesterday in Ha Noi.
The international seminar was co-organised by the Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training, the Embassy of Sweden in Ha Noi and Sweden's Uppsala University.
The workshop focused on assessing public policies and their impacts on education at all levels, from kindergarten, primary, secondary, high school and university.
The workshop was also a forum for foreign education experts to share experiences on training administrative and public management-related human resources with Vietnamese experts.
The Ministry of Education and Training thanked and valued the support from Sweden and co-operation in training at university and post-graduate education, said Deputy Minister of Education and Training Bui Van Ga.
Among the co-operation, Uppsala University has assisted effectively Viet Nam's universities and management agencies in establishing and implementing co-ordination programmes since 1970.
The deputy minister hoped that the seminar would strengthen the co-operation in education and training between the two countries in many fields, and support Viet Nam's ongoing process of comprehensive education renovation.
The seminar not only contributed to improving co-operation but also enhanced mutual understanding, opening up new opportunities for cultural and economic co-operation between the two countries.
Viet Nam has made a series of achievements in social welfare, including hunger and poverty eradication and measures that help poor people access public services, such as healthcare, education, vocational training, legal advice, housing, clean water, preferential credit and infrastructure development in poor areas.
Viet Nam has also developed a social and health insurance system.
Swedish experts said training professional human resources on public management was one of the break-through steps that had helped Viet Nam's fast development. — VNS
