Vietnam signed two accords of educational and research cooperation with Hessen State of Germany in Wiesbaden on May 4.

The signing was part of an ongoing visit to the European country by a delegation from the Ministry of Education and Training (MET) and the Vietnam-Germany University , led by MET Minister Pham Vu Luan.

All three signatories, including the Minister of Science and Art, Eva-Kuehne-Hoerman, and the Minister of Culture, Dorothea Henzler, of Hessen State, described the accords as a contribution to bilateral relations, especially in scientific research and the exchange of students.

The Vietnam-Germany University is an example of successful cooperation between the two countries, attracting many donors, including the Hessen and Baden-Wuerttemberg states of Germany , the Vietnamese Government and businesses from the two countries.

The World Bank has committed a loan worth 180 million USD for the upgrade of infrastructure at the university, which will graduate the first batch of students this year./.
