Hanoi (VNA) – Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong appreciated scientists’ recommendations for Vietnam’s national development during a reception in Hanoi on December 15.

The scientists attended the fifth international symposium on Vietnamese studies the same day. Themed “Sustainable development in the context of global change”, the event focused on knowledge transfer, science-technology, climate change, environment and sustainable development.

The organising board chose more than 800 reports out of nearly 1,000, including over 150 ones by foreign scholars from 30 countries and territories.

Participants put forward suggestions involving Vietnam’s development strategy, the fourth industrial revolution, climate change response, which, the Party leader said, will be collected and submitted to relevant agencies for consideration.

He wished that scientists would continue popularising their knowledge about Vietnam worldwide and sharing development experience with the country.

He asked Overseas Vietnamese scientists to serve as a bridge connecting Vietnam and international friends, contributing to developing Vietnamese studies.

He also hailed several proposals to facilitate Vietnamese studies, including establishing a Vietnamese studies research centre.-VNA
