Moscow (VNA) – Vietnamese students are joining more than 3,000 representatives from 72 countries and 126 universities worldwide at the Eurasian Economic Forum of the Youth, which is taking place in Moscow, Russia, from April 16-19.

First Secretary at the Vietnamese Embassy in Russia Le Chi Loi, who is also in charge of the management of Vietnamese students in Russia, led the Vietnamese delegation comprising students who are pursuing study at the Ural State University of Economics (USUE) to the plenary session themed “Russia-Asia-Africa-Latin America: The Economy of Mutual Trust”.

In a press conference held in the framework of the forum, Loi said that there are some 6,000 Vietnamese students in Russia, and the country grants nearly 1,000 scholarships for Vietnam each year. The graduates of Russian universities have made proactive contributions to the national construction and development cause in Vietnam.

He took the occasion to thank Russian teachers and universities for creating the best conditions for Vietnamese students in the past years.

USUE rector Silin Yakov told Vietnam News Agency’s correspondent that the forum is a good opportunity for youth delegates and diplomats from more than 70 countries worldwide to discus and give out initiatives to enhance mutual trust.

The forum focuses on current trends in national and global economy, hoping to create motives and a favourable environment for innovation in scientific research and develop startup projects among young people, he added.

In the framework of the forum, there will be cultural exchanges, photo exhibitions, seminars and an international martial art festival.-VNA
