SGGP

The Vietnam Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (VIASM) yesterday held a summary meeting for the national key program to develop mathematics from 2020-2021 and a celebration for its 10th anniversary.

Minister of Education and Training Phung Xuan Nha stated in the meeting that the national key program to develop math has been able to attract the participation of 315 international mathematicians from 27 nations and 76 Vietnamese ones. Many of them are renowned in their own field.

Politburo member Nguyen Thien Nhan insisted that the human resources development in math means a focus on IT, AI, and automation. He then pointed out applied math as the weakness in math development in Vietnam, saying that it should receive more attention.

He also mentioned the necessity to promote the growth of a math ecosystem in the country.

In addition, the national key program to develop mathematics should identify specific monitoring indexes, while VIASM should form a close collaboration with the two major cities of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City for a stable growth.
