HCM City (VNA) – Ho Chi Minh City wants to cooperate with Australia’s Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT University) in building a vision action plan related to education and training in the next 20 years, said Vice Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Vo Van Hoan on October 21.

At a reception for Dr. Martin Bean, Vice Chancellor and President of RMIT University, Hoan said HCM City supports a proposal to open more branches of RMIT University in Vietnam, and will provide more assistance for the university’s operations in the coming time.

He congratulated the university on its successes and development in Vietnam over the last two decades, saying that those have remarkably contributed to Vietnam’s education development.

Hoan called on the educational institution to include high technology and artificial intelligence (AI) in its education and training programmes, thus creating high-quality human resources to meet the market demand.

HCM City is willing to closely coordinate with RMIT University to build a cooperation programme for the next 20 years, which will specify vision, plan, roadmap, and methods to implement cooperation activities in training, education and improving the quality of human resources, he affirmed.

For his part, Martin Bean thanked the city’s leaders for their support to the operations of RMIT University’s branch in HCM City over the last 20 years, hoping that the university will continue to be supported to better the training quality in the coming time.

RMIT University is ready to cooperate with HCM City to organize an international workshop on education and improving the quality of higher education, as well as the application of AI in the field. It will partner with the city’s relevant agencies and sectors to build an action plan for the next 20 years, thus benefiting both sides, he said./.
