– President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee (VFFCC) Tran Thanh Man met with senior executives of the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on December 7.

Man, accompanied by Vietnamese Ambassador to Australia Ngo Huong Nam at the meeting, is making a tour of Australia from December 6-10.

At the event, Vice-Chancellor and President of RMIT Martin Bean spoke highly of the educational cooperation between Vietnam and Australia in recent years in accordance with the two countries’ agreements, including the agreement in education and training for the 2013-2018 period, the Australia-Vietnam Human Resources Development Programme from 2016-2020, and the Australia Awards Scholarships.

The VFFCC President, for his part, was delighted at RMIT’s launch of new programmes – bachelor’s degrees in Design Studies, Tourism and Hospitality Management, and Languages – in Vietnam this year. He said he looks forward to the university introducing a Graduate Certificate in Business Startups in the future.

He hoped that RMIT will provide short-term courses in English language and administrative management for staff at the VFFCC and support the committee’s new centre for training and science studies which will be operational by the end of 2018.

Later the same day, Man visited a high-tech farm of fruits and vegetables, namely Lotus, on the outskirts of Melbourne run by Thai Son, a Vietnamese expat.
