Hanoi (VNA) – The fifth international scientific conference on Vietnam studies, themed “Sustainable development in the context of global change”, will take place in Hanoi on December 15-18, according to the Vietnam National University – Hanoi (VNU-Hanoi).

Similar events were previously held in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City in 1998, 2002, 2008 and 2012.

Hosted by the VNU-Hanoi in partnership with ministries and research institutes, the conference aims to create an international academic forum to discuss and propose solutions to contemporary issues that Vietnam is experiencing.

It also looks to promote the development of the global network of Vietnam studies and connect researchers and experts from different countries, towards establishing an international organisation on Vietnam studies.

This year, discussions will be divided into six sections, which deal with foreign relations, international cooperation and integration; cultural resources; education and training and human resource development; technology and knowledge transfer; economy and livelihood; and climate change.

The organising board has so far received 700 articles by scientists worldwide.

Prof. Vu Minh Giang, Chairman of the VNU-Hanoi’s Council for Science and Training, said the event will focus on the transfer of knowledge and technology, and climate change, which are posing great challenges to Vietnam, as well as topical issues./.
