HÀ NỘI Chairwoman of the National Assembly Nguyễn Thị Kim Ngân stressed the important role of the teachers in the country’s education and training development during a meeting with lawmakers who are former teachers, teachers and education managers in Hà Nội on Tuesday.
At the event, held by the NA Committee for Culture, Education, Youth, Adolescents and Children on the occasion of the 37th anniversary of the Vietnamese Teachers’ Day (November 20), the top legislator extended best wishes to the lawmakers, and said that Việt Nam had attained robust education achievements in the past when implementing the education development strategy for 2011-20.
Particularly, the adoption of the revised Law on Education and a law on amendments and supplements to a number of articles of the Law on Higher Education had created a legal basis to comprehensively renew the education and training, making contributions to the national development cause, she stressed.
Due attention had been paid to improving capacity of human resources in the education sector while education quality had been improved significantly.
As they are only initial results in the education renovation process, NA Chairwoman Ngân expressed her hopes that Vietnamese teachers would make more effort to develop national education, putting it on a par with advanced education in the region and the world while serving the nation’s sustainable development in the new stage.
The meeting was also attended by Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc, head of the Party Central Committee’s Mass Mobilisation Commission Trương Thị Mai, Deputy Prime Minister Vương Đình Huệ, among others. VNS
