The Global Skills Opportunity will also see nine Canadian universities launch projects with Vietnam as a destination

The three-day event was also attended by Canada’s chief trade commissioner Sara Wilshaw, where attendees sought to build and deepen relationships.

Vietnam is a focus country for both Universities Canada and the federal government’s International Education Strategy and of Canada’s broader trade objectives, organisers said.

“Education is a top priority for both Canada and Vietnam”

“As the world emerges from the pandemic, Universities Canada and its members understand the importance of developing long-lasting relationships with international partners,” Paul Davidson, president of Universities Canada, said.

“This mission was an opportunity for unparalleled networking opportunities, while developing and strengthening connections with our counterparts in Vietnam.”

Other initiatives aiming to strengthen the countries’ partnership include TECHFEST which Universities Canada will support to further development of the startup ecosystem in Vietnam.

National outbound student mobility program for Canadians – the Global Skills Opportunity – will also see nine Canadian universities launch projects with Vietnam as a destination.

“Education is a top priority for both Canada and Vietnam,” minister of International Trade, Export Promotion, Small Business, and Economic Development Mary Ng added.

“As outlined in our government’s International Education Strategy, education is not only a key driver for innovation and for the future prosperity of our countries, but it is a fantastic way to build even more global bridges.

“Academia is key to this work as demonstrated by Universities Canada’s critical leadership in launching this trade mission which will not only help our nation’s best and brightest collaborate on new ideas, but pave the way for a more united global recovery.”
