Vietnam: More universities are granted self-autonomy
Minister of Education and Training Phùng Xuân Nhạ talks with Tuổi Trẻ (Youth) newspaper about his plan to grant more universities autonomous rights
Last year, you said your priorities were to complete a national educational policy and a human resources development plan. It seems that education has taken priority, is that right?
As head of the education sector, the first thing I care about is developing it. I issued instructions about how to make the policy a reality and monitor how it was implemented. If any shortcomings were detected, I would come up with measures to fix them. In the past few years, the ministry has consulted with experts and listened carefully to their suggestions to make the policy more workable.
