Gia Loc-Lan Phuong HCM CITY (VNS) — Financial autonomy has helped many universities in HCM City improve their facilities, human resources, scientific research and training quality, thereby building a brand name both locally and internationally.

These reconfirmed Vietnam’s commitments to sustainable development where the business sector plays an extremely important role. Currently in Vietnam, very few companies have visions for sustainable development at the heart of their business strategies. This concerns people working to promote sustainable development in Vietnam. Looking to the world, sustainable development has become the focus of global agendas. The United Nations Sustainable Development Summit, held in September 2015, adopted 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) for the 2015-2030 period.
