Officials of the northern Bac Ninh province are scheduled to attend a training course in Singapore early next year, in a bid to improve their knowledge and experience in State administrative management.

The agreement was reached at a December 13 meeting between the provincial authority and a delegation from Nanyang Centre for Public Administration, under Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.

At the meeting, Chairman of Bac Ninh People’s Committee Nguyen Nhan Chien said, as one of the provinces with fastest growth rate and most foreign direct investment in the country, Bac Ninh attaches much importance to training high quality personnel, in order to meet the development demand.

He asked the Singaporean partner to hold English language training courses as well as post-graduate and refresher courses in administrative and public administrative management for the province’s key officials.

The centre’s vice director Guo Sam Nan said he hopes for long-term collaboration with Bac Ninh province, thus contributing to education and experience training between Singapore and Vietnam.-VNA
