NDO/VNA—President Tran Dai Quang congratulated 137 outstanding ethnic minority students on their achievements at national academic contests and the 2016 university entrance exams at a meeting in Hanoi on November 4.

He praised the Committee for Ethnic Minority Affairs, the Ministry of Education and Training and relevant agencies for taking the initiative to organise the event to honour and grant scholarships to ethnic minority students who exhibited good performance in their studies, encouraging them to continue their academic endeavours.

The President asked the committee, ministry and relevant agencies to study and complete policies on developing a staff of minority teachers to promote human resources development and improve academic standards, contributing to sustainable poverty reduction and comprehensive socioeconomic development in minority and mountainous areas.

He stressed the important role of education and training, especially the work in minority and mountainous areas.

This year’s ceremony to honour ethnic minority students with academic achievements will take place at the Vietnam Youth Academy on November 5.
