PM asks for building of international-level universities

Hanoi , August 28 (VNA) – The Prime Minister has urged upgrades of Hanoi National University and Ho Chi Minh City National University to exceptional tertiary education facilities towards regional and international standards by 2020.

In a conclusion during the recent Government meeting on excellent universities, the PM asked the two universities to promote their internal strength and responsibility to attract domestic and international investment as well as speed up the renovations of their operations.

The promotion of partnerships and international integration is encouraged in the field, creating favourable conditions for foreign education facilities to invest in Vietnam for the improvement of human resources and backing Vietnamese students to study abroad.

Looking forward, it is necessary to continue the implementation of underway official development assistance projects, including Vietnam-Germany University , Hanoi Science and Technology University , and Vietnam-Japan University towards international-level facilities, he asked.

Establishment of new excellent universities through cooperation between the Vietnamese Government and foreign governments will not be expanded, he directed.

The PM assigned the Ministry of Education and Training in collaboration with the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology and Ho Chi Minh City National University to conduct a comprehensive assessment of operations and management models of the Vietnam-Germany University and Hanoi Science and Technology University to make suitable proposals.

The Ministry of Education and Training will manage the universities, while Ho Chi Minh City National University and the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology will directly administrate.

The PM also asked for the submission of a report on financial and legal regulations applied to the facilities in line with the realities in Vietnam before September 15.
