The Vietnam Academy of Social Science in collaboration with the Francophone University Association (AUF) inaugurated the Hanoi Campus, a French research and learning centre, on April 22.

According to Head of the Francophone University Association Bernard Cerquiglini, the Hanoi establishment will bring a wide range of advanced educational materials and facilities to French students, postgraduates and lecturers from AUF member schools. It also serves as a communal space for them to study and organise events.

A similar centre will also be opened in Ho Chi Minh City.
