Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc speaks at the meeting

He made the remarks at a meeting with the Vietnam Association for Promoting Education (VAPE) in preparation for a congress honouring outstanding models nationwide during the 2016-2020 period.

The leader lauded efforts of the VAPE’s members and its chapters in building a learning society, saying the association has worked hard to roll out learning models across the country.

He suggested the association replicate the outstanding models and revamp its operational methods in order to promote the studying spirit among not only young people but also the elderly in the new period.

Startups should be encouraged among students, as well as economists and scientists, he added.

After the congress, a studying movement must be spread across the society, contributing to improving personnel quality so as to meet the country’s development requirements, the leader requested.
