Education, infrastructure and energy are priority areas for cooperation between Vietnam and Australia.
Speaking at a lunch in Melbourne recently, His Excellency Vo Hong Phuc, the Vietnamese Minister for Planning and Investment, said: “Enhancing Vietnam’s human resources is a key objective over the next ten years.”
An integral component in achieving this objective is greater Vietnamese participation in vocational training and university level education.
Minister Phuc referred to RMIT University’s strong presence in Vietnam and the importance of providing opportunities for Vietnamese students both in Vietnam and in Australia.
Minister Phuc led a high level contingent of Vietnamese officials and industry representatives who were in Melbourne for annual Vietnam-Australia Joint Trade and Economic Cooperation Committee discussions.
The lunch was co-hosted by the RMIT College of Business and Ernst & Young. Guests included senior staff from RMIT and Ernst & Young and members of Melbourne’s business community.
Mr Tony Burchill, Senior Trade and Investment Commissioner, Austrade Vietnam, welcomed guests and referred to RMIT’s importance as a provider of quality education and training programs in Australia and internationally.
The College of Business Enterprise Group obtained incentive funding in 2010 to establish a small, action-oriented group who will form a bridge between business, government enterprises and RMIT.
The Enterprise Board, of which Mr Burchill is a member, aims to build on current industry engagement initiatives, provide a fast-track to developing practical, mutually beneficial relationships and to undertake projects that achieve demonstrable outcomes for the College and University in priority areas.
