The establishment of the Vietnam-Australia Center (VAC) was made according to the agreement between the Prime Minister of Vietnam and the Prime Minister of Australia in August 2019. The Center aims to contribute to improving the capacity of the leadership and management staff of Vietnam to meet the requirements of integration and development of the country, and promote the close, positive and sustainable cooperative relationship between the two countries in the new context.

Speaking at the ceremony, Director of HCMA Prof. Dr. Nguyen Xuan Thang said that the establishment of the Vietnam-Australia Center is a new milestone in the strategic partnership between Vietnam and Australia. The Center contributes to helping Vietnam access Australian knowledge, skills and professional experience in the fields of training, fostering and scientific research, thereby enhancing understanding and deepening the relationship between Vietnam and Australia.

Australian Ambassador to Vietnam, Ms. Robyn Mudie, said that Australia is delighted to be able to support Vietnam in its efforts to become a developed, high-income country by 2045. The establishment of a dynamic and effective center to promote knowledge sharing and innovative cooperation between Vietnam and Australia is an important initiative to make this support. “The Vietnam-Australia Center is also a symbol of trust between the two countries and a priority in our development partnership with Vietnam,” she said.

The Vietnam - Australia Center will be jointly operated by the HCMA and the DFAT through the Aus4Skills program./.
