On Oct. 29-30, ASU hosted 10 members of the senior Vietnamese government and industry officials from the Vinh Phuc Province to collaborate on future projects that will ensure the sustainability of Vinh Phuc. The province is quickly becoming the go-to for manufacturing and foreign investment. "As part of our province's growth plan, we are looking for partners in development, especially in the United States," says Phung Quang Hung, chairman of the Vinh Phuc People’s Committee. "We greatly appreciate the goodwill and assistance the leadership and staff at Arizona State University has accorded to our delegation. We look forward to working with ASU and the Vietnam Higher Engineering Education Alliance in drawing up a cooperation plan in the field of education and training and other areas of development." The memorandum of understanding will first bring about collaboration on sustainability efforts then move on to biomedical engineering, public policy training, and sustainable tourism.
