Local visitors had two hours talking and exchanging information directly with representatives from U.S. schools. Young people are especially interested in information about localtions of the schools, schools' campus, educational and training conditions of the schools, and criteria for enrollment in schools. 

At the event, the Consulate General Office of the U.S. Embassy in Hanoi also provided useful information about visa and scholarship application for Vietnamese students.

Studying in the U.S. can create many job opportunities for international students.
