Speaking at the ceremony, the senior government official highly praised the results that VNU-HCM has achieved in recent years, including pioneering in the pilot deployment of new technology models in training and gradually standardising and developing training programmes to reach international standards.

The university’s lecturers have gained high achievements in teaching and scientific research and have been honoured with prestigious awards in the country and the world.
