Vietnamese Consul General in Hong Kong (China) Pham Binh Dam on July 28 met with leaders of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) to discuss ways to step up cooperation in education between Vietnam and the territory in education.

The meeting also sought to expand the partnership between HKUST and Vietnamese universities, with an aim to increasing the number of Vietnamese students in the Hong Kongese university.

Welcoming Dam, HKUST President Prof. Wei Shyy said he has a good impression of Vietnam’s history, people, and nature. He also highly spoke of Vietnamese students studying at the university for their outstanding academic performance as well as successful Vietnamese alumni.

HKUST wants to welcome more excellent Vietnamese students to its main campus in Hong Kong and another soon to be launched in Guangzhou, mainland China, he said, adding that the university also expects to foster ties with higher education institutions, via student and lecturer exchanges.

About 40 Vietnamese are studying at HKUST, comprising 30 graduate and ten post-graduate students, and many Vietnamese students at the university have been awarded at international competitions, according to Vice President Prof. Yang Wang.

Dam, for his part, pledged the Consulate General of Vietnam in Hong Kong will support and connect to ensure that more Vietnamese students have an educational opportunity at universities in Hong Kong every year as they are expected to become a high-quality workforce that helps accelerate Vietnam’s growth in both short and long term.

Dam took the occasion to ask Prof. Wei Shyy to add a voice to call on Hong Kong authorities to remove visa restrictions on skilled workers from Vietnam, deemed as a barrier to the bilateral cooperation for development.

HKUST was placed second among this year’s Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) Top 50 Under 50 which lists the world’s best universities that are 50 years old or younger.

Previously, the Vietnamese Consul General had a meeting with leaders of Hong Kong Baptist University, one of eight public universities in Hong Kong.
