Speaking at the September 4 event, Vietnamese Ambassador to the UK and Ireland Nguyen Hoang Long emphasized that the committee's establishment is an important milestone marking the operation of the Vietnamese Students Association in Ireland.
He said that the association will further bolster education collaboration in that the bilateral ties have been lifted to a new height with the opening of Vietnam's Honorary Consulate Office in Dublin in July 2023.
Education cooperation between the two countries is flourishing as it tops four priority areas in Ireland's official development assistance (ODA) strategy for Vietnam.
Master and PhD scholarship programs for Southeast Asian countries have increased with Ireland now being a destination for many Vietnamese lecturers, researchers, and students.
