The U.S. government continues its cooperation efforts with Vietnam through a series of programs that support the latter country’s efforts to build on its higher education system.
The White House said Wednesday the education alliance has assisted more than 30,000 university students with curriculum support and capacity building.
Efforts have expanded to include training in science, technology, engineering, math and medicine with the help of private-sector funding support.
The Improving Access, Curriculum and Teaching in Medical Education and Emerging Diseases and Building University-Industry Learning and Development through Innovation and Technology alliances — both led by the U.S. Agency for International Development — will work to provide education and workforce development support in Vietnam with the help of industry and university partners.
The White House also noted the country’s efforts to assist Vietnam’s development through the Vietnam Education Foundation and the $20 million investment that helped establish Fulbright University Vietnam.
