Hanoi (VNA) – President Truong Tan Sang has asked the Military Academy of Logistics to focus on renewing training programmes and improving the quality of education, as well as Party building work.

During his meeting with staff and cadets of the academy on January 29, the President underlined the need for the school to strictly implement Resolution of the 12th National Party Congress.

Along with reforming the methods of teaching and study, it is necessary to promote scientific research related to military logistics and increase investment in building and upgrading facilities to better serve educational development, he said.

While hearing a report of the school’s foundation and development over the last 65 years, the President praised the important role the logistics sector played in each period of the army’s development and Vietnam’s past struggle for national independence.

In the context of complicated developments in the region and the world, the military logistics sector should make more efforts to contribute to consolidating national security and defence, he noted.

As one of the military schools, the Military Academy of Logistics has become a key centre for education, and science and logistics research in the country.

During past struggles for national independence , the school trained not only a large number of logistics officers for the whole army, but also trained officers for Laos and Cambodia.-VNA
