Speaking at the seminar, Counsellor Do Thi Bich Ngoc, Head of Vietnam’s division for science and technology in the RoK, provided an overview of Vietnam’s orientations for scientific - technological development and innovation, noting that Vietnam views science and technology as an impulse for growth.

At the event, delegates presented some speeches on the studies on environmental and climate change issues, metaverse development, the chemical industry, 3D printing, and human resources development, which are being conducted by Vietnamese scientists in the RoK. These areas suggest new cooperation chances for the two countries’ scientists and businesses, as well as policies for scientific and technological development.

The delegates said that the bilateral cooperation context has been creating favourable conditions for partnerships in science and technology.

Vietnamese scientists and students in the RoK are growing in terms of both quantity and quality. Many scientists of Vietnam have initially gained a foothold in some scientific and technological areas in the Northeast Asian nation. A number of them are enthusiastic about contributing to the homeland’s development.

Vietnamese Ambassador to RoK Nguyen Vu Tung highly valued the scientists’ sense of responsibility towards the homeland and bilateral scientific - technological cooperation.

He emphasized that the embassy will stand by the Vietnamese scientists in the RoK and create favourable conditions for them to develop./.
