The development of the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) model in Vietnam is an indispensable trend of the current age, Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Thien Nhan has said.

While receiving KIST President Kil Choo Moon in Hanoi on October 9, Nhan said that Vietnam plans to strongly develop the science and technology sector between now and 2030 with the aim of carrying out practical researches that meet people’s aspirations.

Therefore, the model will boost cooperation between Vietnam and the RoK in graduate and post-graduate training, he stressed.

Nhan thanked the RoK for its efforts to accelerate the building of the Vietnam Institute of Science and Technology Research after the KIST model, expressing his wish that after the completion of the project, the RoK side will share working experience with Vietnamese officials.

Kil expressed his belief that together with the support and cooperation of the Vietnamese Government, the project will be completed at the earliest time, making the institute an attractive destination for scientists inside and outside the country./.
