According to Ambassador Pham Viet Anh, the Netherlands, also known as the lowlands, has experienced many difficulties and had to adapt to unfavorable natural conditions. They turn challenges into opportunities to rise and achieve current prosperity. This country is the birthplace of great scientists, talented artists, scientific inventions, and digital technology turning points that help change the world.
Through that, the author wants to send to Vietnamese readers a message about the desire and tireless efforts to adapt to harsh conditions during the process of building the country of the Dutch people, along with that, he drew valuable lessons from the Netherlands so that Vietnam can develop and grow strongly. As Darwin, the father of the theory of evolution once said, "It is not the most intellectual of the species that survives; it is not the strongest that survives," Ha Huy Thong, former Vietnamese Ambassador to the Netherlands shared at the launching ceremony, "Don't fight nature anymore, adapt to it."
