In his welcome speech, Ambassador Nguyen Vu Tu pointed to the fact that the number of the Vietnamese students in the Republic of Korea is increasing vigorously to 50,000 now. They will play a key role in the development of economic development of Vietnam as well as the Vietnam – RoK relations, he stressed, expressing his hope that the conference will create a new and strong encouragement for young Vietnamese scientists in the host country.
