Vietnam has asserted itself as a new economic growth center in Asia with a robust position in the global supply chain as it consistently attracts investment from multinational corporations.

Deputy Minister of Education and Training Nguyen Van Phuc said that Vietnam has abundant human resources, with the number of students studying STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) method accounting for one-third and increasing about 10% in the last three years.

Vietnam has strengths in training mathematics and chemistry, a good foundation for developing remaining industries such as semiconductor and information technology.

He expressed his hope that U.S. firms will cooperate closely with and support Vietnamese universities to build training programs, and establish laboratories.
