At the meeting, the two sides agreed to promote scientific research programs on nano technology, radio and communication techniques, economics, business administration, computer science and energy, as well as student and faculty exchange in addition to other programs which have been signed and in practice before.
In his presentation, Dr. Cao Viet Hieu stressed: “In Vietnam today, many youth, including our school students, take interest in exploring the people and country of Russia. Noteworthily, our school embraces a great number of teachers and staff who were trained in the former Soviet Union, now known as the Russia Federation. This is the very premise to facilitate the two school’s mutual cooperation and exchange.”
In reply, Mr. A.I.Rudskoi, Russian Science Academician and SPPU President, said that the cooperative relationship between SPPU and Vietnam’s universities dates back half-a century ago, or more. During that period of time, SPPU managed to train over 600 experts of technology and economics. At present, we aim to increase the number of students from Vietnam in general, and BDU in particular, to study at SPPU. Hopefully, we will have more cooperative programs to generate a high-quality workforce for the society and the country.
