ĐÀ NẴNG — Đà Nẵng and the Irish Embassy in Việt Nam have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on high quality human resource education, management skills for the city’s personnel and start-up programmes for students in the central city.
The MoU, which was signed last Friday, will also include a master education programme, education exchanges among Đà Nẵng’s Economics College and Irish universities and a humanitarian programme supporting disabled citizens of Đà Nẵng.
Cait Moran, Ambassador of Ireland to Việt Nam, said the MoU aims to boost the relationship between Ireland and the central city and strengthen co-operation between Đà Nẵng with locals and cities in Ireland. In 2014, Ireland and the city also signed a MoU for the project of Strengthening Capacity and Sustainability On Early Childhood Disabilities Detection and Intervention with total Euro 302,500 (US$377,278) through Irish Aid.
The project aims to help screen prematurely-born babies and help with 9,000 children with disabilities and 120 kids that need intervention surgeries from 2013-20.
In 2012-14 the Irish Aid also supported the ’Enhancing the Capacity of the Healthcare Network in the Prevention and Early Detection of Children’s Disabilities’ project in the city’s Cẩm Lệ District. — VNS
