Thai Nguyen (VNA) – A delegation of the Ivory Coast Government on March 27 visited the Thai Nguyen University of Education in the northern province of Thai Nguyen to study the university’s experience in training teachers as well as its education-training strategy amidst international integration.

They were briefed on the school’s training methods and job opportunities for students in the context of international integration.  

The guests said they would send more experts to the school to learn from its experience.  

The trip has been made through the World Bank (WB), aiming to materialise Ivory Coast’s education strategy and policy by 2030.

While in Vietnam, the delegation will also make field trips to schools in Hanoi and the northern province of Ninh Binh.

Ivory Coast’s population is expected to increase to 30 million by 2030 and 50 million by 2050, with young labourers making up about 75 percent. This creates both opportunities and challenges to the country’s socio-economic development, requiring sound decisions and policies in education and personnel training.-VNA
