NDO – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc visited and congratulated teachers and intellectuals who have made great contributions to the country's education and training on Vietnamese Teachers’ Day, on November 20.

>>> Teachers are decisive factor in the success of educational reform

The government leader visited People's Teacher Thai Thi Lien, one of the first female pianists in Vietnam and one of the first seven teachers to establish the Vietnam Music School (now the Vietnam National Academy of Music). The only survivor of the seven Lien is a living witness of the academy’s history.

The PM expressed his best wishes to Lien on the occasion of the Vietnamese Teachers’ Day and also the 100th anniversary of her birth. On behalf of the Party and State leaders, PM Phuc conveyed his sincere gratitude to the Vietnamese People's Teacher for training many famous Vietnamese artists, including her two children – the world renowned pianist Dang Thai Son and People's Artist Tran Thu Ha, Vietnam's leading pianist and professor, who is also a Labour Hero and former director of the Vietnam National Academy of Music.

Also in the morning, PM Phuc visited Writer Vu Tu Nam, who was awarded the State Awards for Literature and Arts. The PM said that through famous literary works, such as Ben duong 12 (Along the Road No. 12), Que huong (Homeland) and Cuoc phieu luu cua Van Ngan tuong cong (The adventures of a gander named Van Ngan), Nam made great contributions to the cause of the country’s education, as well as contributing to nurturing a range of Vietnamese writers, setting a good example for the present generation.

Visiting Sculptor Ta Quang Bao, PM Phuc highly praised the sculptor who has produced many works of arts and important monuments across the country, including the statue of Teacher Chu Van An (1292-1370) – the most well-known teacher in Vietnamese feudalism. In addition, with his talent, Bao also contributed to training many successful sculptors for the nation.

PM Phuc stated that the Government is actively studying to promptly develop an appropriate support policy for teachers and artists in order to ensure that those working in the field have a stable life and make a greater contribution to education, training, literature and the arts in the country.
