French Ambassador to Vietnam Olivier Brochet affirmed that the CNRS is proud to continue accompanying Vietnam in addressing current global challenges like climate change, energy transition, and the protection of oceans.

The diplomat unveiled that the French minister of science and technology will visit and work in Vietnam to sign an intergovernmental sci-tech cooperation agreement.
