Vietnam , which was released in Hanoi on April 20, provides deep
analysis on the effectiveness of the country’s primary and secondary
Addressing the ceremony, Keiko Sato, WB
Portfolio and Operations Manager, said she expects that the report will
provide more foundations for the country to implement its socio-economic
development strategy in the 2011-2020 period and education strategy in
the 2011-2020 period.
According to WB, the rate of
literacy and attendance is quite high compared with other regional
countries and the group of countries of the same income level.
Vietnam is facing challenges in narrowing the gap in accessing
learning opportunities between different groups of people, as well as
improving learning and teaching quality.
To deal with the
difficulties, Vietnam needs to give priority in public budget
provision to the education sector and improve the effectiveness of
expenditure and school management quality.
According to WB lead
economist Emanuela di Gropello, one of the main writers of the report,
reform is of great importance that meets people’s requirements on higher
quality education and will help to build sustainable foundations for
human development when Vietnam is a middle-income country.-VNA
