NDO - Female intellectuals should continue to uphold the tradition of Vietnamese women to contribute more to the renewal of education – training and science – technology, contributing to the rapid and sustainable development of the country.

The statement was made by Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam at the first Science and Technology Conference for Women in the northern region, held in Hanoi on October 17.

Themed ‘Female intellectuals with science and technology for sustainable development’, the conference offered an opportunity for female scientists to share information and experience on the application of scientific and technological advances, towards sustainable national development.

Speaking at the event, the Deputy PM appreciated the activities launched by the Vietnam Female Intellectuals’ Association over recent years.

He noted that the Politburo has issued a Resolution on the fourth industrial revolution 4.0. Therefore, in order to take full advantage of the opportunities from the revolution, it is crucial to develop rational institutions to create conditions for science and technology development, promote human resources and enhance innovation.

Deputy PM Dam highlighted the proud achievements in science, technology, education and training which have been hailed by the world in the recent years.

He also required relevant agencies to frankly point out the limitations to find solutions to remedy the issues.

Accordingly, it is essential to create breakthrough renewals in supporting policies and benefits (related to tax, finance and credit) to attract more investors in science and technology as well as renovate the financial management mechanism for the science and technology in the direction of acceptance of risks in scientific research, said the Deputy PM.
