HÀ NỘI – Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc praised some 40 students for their high achievements in national, regional and international exams, urging them to make greater efforts to drive the country to the fourth industrial revolution.
Speaking at a ceremony in Hà Nội on Saturday, the PM praised the Ministry of Education and Training (MoET) for its changes in training methods, saying they contributed to improving Việt Nam’s performance at regional and international competitions.
The Government leader suggested the ministry make more comprehensive changes, especially in higher education models, in order to train world-renowned engineers, technicians and academics.
According to MoET Minister Phùng Xuân Nhạ, 27 out of 28 Vietnamese students won prizes at regional and international physics, chemistry, biology, math and computer Olympiads in 2016. Twelve Vietnamese students were also sent to the International Conference on Research in Science and Technology, he said.
The minister said Việt Nam has shown its sense of responsibility for such Olympiads by hosting the 27th International Biology Olympiad with the participation of 252 students from 68 countries and territories.
The top five students at national exams hail from the Phan Bội Châu High School for Gifted Students in the central province of Nghệ An, the High School for Gifted Students of the Hà Nội National University, the Lê Hồng Phong High School for Gifted Students in the northern province of Nam Định, and the Phạm Văn Đồng High School in the Central Highlands province of Đắk Lắk. – VNS
