As many as 48 poor students with outstanding academic achievements at Hue University have received scholarships from Japanese organisations.

The scholarships, each worth 200 USD, were presented at a ceremony in the central city of Hue on December 9.

Over the past 13 years, the Japan Business Association and the Japanese Economic Association have channelled support to the university’s poor students in order to help them overcome difficulties.

They have also encouraged Vietnamese students to pay more attention to Japan and its economy while contributing to enhancing the linkage between the two countries.

The imperial capital city has set up relations with many major cities in Japan , especially Fukuroi, in order to promote Japanese language learning in the locality.-VNA
