President Trinh Minh Thu highly appreciated the representative of the Indonesian Embassy for kind offer of cooperation in education, training and scientific research between the two sides as well as between the Government of Vietnam and the Government of Indonesia. He applaused the idea of setting up a cooperative network through the MOUs with universities in Indonesia, which will surely increase the opportunities for TLU lecturers, students and young researchers to access the education and research in the ASEAN region.
Due to the prolonged Covid-19 epidemic, international cooperation in many fields was postponed. The visit of Ms. Arum Primasty to TLU shows the flexibility, changing diplomatic ways so that cooperation activities are still carried out through official representative organizations in Vietnam. She offered to be a bridge connecting TLU and Indonesian universities so that future collaborative activities can be carried out soon, such as lecturer and student exchange, joint seminars and conferences and joint research. This meeting has set a good foundation for the relationship between TLU and the Embassy and contributes in the promotion of the cooperation between the two countries in education, training and scientific research.
