The signatories were Vietnamese Minister of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs Dao Ngoc Dung, and British Ambassador to Viet Nam Gareth Ward.
The MoU is expected to create a legal framework for bilateral cooperation, contributing to realising the goal of vocational education development in Viet Nam, and promoting the bilateral strategic partnership between Viet Nam and the UK in the time to come.
Under the document, the two sides will share professional knowledge on vocational education; support the development and implementation of sustainable vocational education policies; and share experience on improving the quality of vocational education, and increasing the involvement of businesses to ensure the supply and demand in this field.
The cooperation contents are in line with the implementation of the Viet Nam vocational education development strategy in the 2021-2030 period, with a vision to 2045.
In the framework of the signing ceremony, Minister Dung had a working session with UK Prime Minister's Trade Envoy to Viet Nam Graham Stuart, during which the Vietnamese official spoke highly of the support from the UK in recent years, especially in the field of vocational education through the British Council.
The two sides also shared information on cooperation activities related to supporting victims of human trafficking, and caring for and protecting children. They agreed to step up cooperation in vocational training in order to help Viet Nam improve the quality of its human resources in the future.
