(VOVworld) – The Vietnamese Ambassador to the US has called on US enterprises, organizations, and universities to participate in research and human resource training projects for the greater Mekong sub-region (GMS) through a public-private partnership model.
Nguyen Quoc Cuong made the statement at a recent forum on global measures for new technology application in Washington DC. He said cooperation for sustainable development in the region is one of the Vietnamese Government’s top priorities.
To ensure sustainable development, he said the designated agencies should share data and experience, and transfer technology related to weather tolerance and high yielding crop varieties, human and animal vaccines, clean energy, and climate change adaptation and environmental protection programmes through green agricultural development.
Cuong was one of the keynote speakers at the forum organized by the P80 Group Foundation which was founded by the former heads of state of more than 90 countries, including former US President Bill Clinton.
