HA NOI (VNS) — Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam asked for the UK's support yesterday in improving Viet Nam's education system during a reception for Lord David Terence Puttnam, special envoy of the UK Prime Minister David Cameron in Ha Noi.
Dam said the Government wanted to develop a more forward-thinking education system. Viet Nam aimed to emulate the UK's experience training Vietnamese students in professional skills, he said, vowing that Viet Nam would follow through with Government commitments made in the past.
There are numerous opportunities for the two countries to develop stronger ties in trade, investment, education and training, said Puttnam.
He recommended Viet Nam predict its workforce demand for the future and build a corresponding long-term education plan. — VNS
