Earlier, a top educational institution in Mozambique is also expressing its wish to promote academic cooperation and student exchange activities with Vietnam universities.

Particularly, Maputo Pedagogical University, one of the leading universities in Mozambique, says the educational promotion would help diversify forms of educational cooperation between Vietnam and Mozambique as bilateral friendship has been growing stronger over the years.

Speaking at the meeting with the Vietnamese Ambassador in Mozambique Le Huy Hoang on April 7, Jorge Ferrão - the Rector of Maputo Pedagogical University – highly appreciated the outcome of the academic cooperation between the university and Vietnamese universities, especially the effectiveness of the lecturers and students majoring in Portuguese and Vietnamese exchange programs.
