– A delegation of the Japanese Embassy to Vietnam and the Japan Student Services Organisation (JASSO) in Vietnam had an exchange with administrators and students of Quy Nhon University in the central province of Binh Dinh on November 28.

The exchange focused on issues related to Vietnamese students studying in Japan and the prospect of promoting cooperation between the two countries in the field.

It attracted the participation of over 1,000 students, parents, and lecturers from universities, colleges, and high schools in the locality.

Quy Nhon University trains a large number of human resources in biotechnology, electronics, construction, and software each year.

At the same time, vocational schools and colleges in Binh Dinh province also train many medical staff, nurses, and mechanical workers – occupations in which Japan is in great demand for.

According to the second secretary of the Japanese Embassy in Vietnam Chuman Ai, who led the delegation, JASSO – under the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology – is the leading support organisation for students, especially in providing loans and scholarships for international students.

Vice Rector of Quy Nhon University and Associate Professor Dr. Nguyen Dinh Hien took the occasion to ask the embassy to provide support for the university’s Japanese Language and Culture Centre, particularly books and native teachers.

At present, the centre organises several Japanese language training courses and short-term vocational training courses, as well as activities to promote Japanese culture in Quy Nhon, contributing to attracting investment from Japan to the locality and promoting labour exports to Japan. –VNA
