HÀ NỘI — Deputy Minister of Education and Training Bùi Văn Ga met on Thursday with President of the Swiss Council of States, Ivo Bischofberger, to compare notes on education co-operation between the two countries.

Deputy Minister Ga spoke highly of the Swiss education and co-operation between the two countries over the past years. He briefed Bischofberger about Việt Nam’s higher education system and the fields that need support from other countries, including Switzerland. 

The deputy minister expressed his hope of promoting a deal on bilateral education and training co-operation, expected to be signed in 2018.  In addition, he suggested the Swiss side provide support for a “Swiss made” training model in Việt Nam in 2018 in hotel, tourism and banking-finance studies, which are strengths of the European country. 

Việt Nam also wants Switzerland to create more incentives for outstanding Vietnamese students to access scholarships of the Swiss government, he added. 

For his part, Bischofberger acknowledged the suggestions, saying he appreciated opportunities for co-operation between the two countries given Việt Nam’s young, enthusiastic and keen-to-learn labour force. — VNS
