Project Seeks to Lure Scientists Back Home

Nguoi-viet.com, Posted: Jul 08, 2008

A project to attract overseas Vietnamese experts and scientists to participate in research and technology transfer in educational establishments in Vietnam between 2008 and 2020 is being planned.

According to the Ministry of Education and Training (MoET), the project, expected to cost hundreds of millions of dollars, will draw participants from many sectors.

About 300,000 of the Vietnamese estimated to live and work abroad are university or post-university graduates, and account for 10 to 15 percent of the total number of Vietnamese expatriates. They have specialized in various sectors, including technology, electronics, air space, aviation and telecommunications.

A survey recently conducted at 49 Vietnamese universities indicated that 596 foreign experts have been employed on short-term contracts or as guest lecturers. Of the figure, only 52 were overseas Vietnamese.

Dr. Hoang Ngoc Ha, director of the Department of Science, Technology and Environment, under the MoET, vowed to create favorable working and living conditions for overseas Vietnamese scientists should they return to their native country to work.

The MoET has been appointed as a focal point in the recruitment process and will aid applicants in completing all formalities that will enable their return to and work in the country.
