At the meeting in Hanoi on Saturday, many scientists expressed their willingness to cooperate and work with Vietnam.

They said Vietnam needs to take advantage of its strengths to develop science and technology, while creating conditions for international scientists to live and work in Vietnam.

President Thưởng highly appreciated the contributions to the development of science and education in Vietnam over the past 30 years at the "Rencontres du Vietnam" Association (Meeting Vietnam), especially Prof. Trần Thanh Vân, Prof. Lê Kim Ngọc as well as scientists from the Association.

On the path of renewal, international integration, and national construction and development, the Party and State of Vietnam always consider science-technology and education-training the top national policy, he said.

Vietnam identifies intellectuals as a particularly important labour force in the country’s industrialisation and modernisation process and international integration, he said.

The country always focuses on attracting and using talents, developing high-quality human resources and building a strong contingent of intellectuals for sustainable national development, he added.

The President said he hopes that Vietnam will continue receiving cooperation and support from international scientists and Vietnamese scientists abroad.

He asked competent agencies and localities, including Bình Định Province, to continue supporting the "Rencontres du Vietnam" Association in the realisation of its projects for science and education.

Besides, it is necessary to build and improve suitable mechanisms and policies to create more favourable conditions for scientists, he said.

The international scienfitic conference that opened on August 7 in Bình Định Province is an academic forum for domestic and international scientists to collaborate, exchange ideas, and discuss the latest discoveries in the fields of particle physics, high energy physics, and astronomy.

It was organised by Vietnam's International Centre for Interdisciplinary Science and Education (ICISE), the "Rencontres du Vietnam" Assocation, the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Bình Định Provincial People's Committee.
