NA Chair­woman lauds acad­e­mies’ re­search

Viet Nam News - - NATIONAL -

HAØ NOIÄ — Na­tional Assem­bly (NA) Chair­woman Nguyeãn Thò Kim Nganâ con­grat­u­lated the Vi­etä Nam Academy of So­cial Sci­ences on May 17 for its achieve­ments dur­ing re­cent years, and ex­pressed her be­lief in the academy’s fu­ture progress.

The congratulations were de­liv­ered when the NA Chair­woman at­tended the 5th Vi­etä Nam Science and Tech­nol­ogy Day (May 18) at the academy.

Pro­fes­sor Nguyeãn Quang Thuaná , chair­man of the academy, said that af­ter 65 years of de­vel­op­ment, the academy has un­der­taken in­valu­able re­search and the pol­icy con­sul­tancy, pro­vid­ing sci­en­tific recommendations for the process of for­mu­lat­ing im­por­tant guide­lines and poli­cies of the Party and the State.

The academy’s re­search on per­fect­ing the so­cial­ist-ori­ented mar­ket econ­omy, as well as on im­prov­ing the ef­fi­ciency of State man­age­ment, and sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment and labour pol­icy was an in­dis­pens­able source of ev­i­dence when putting to­gether res­o­lu­tions of the Party Cen­tral Com­mit­tee, he said.

The Vieät Nam Mu­seum of Eth­nol­ogy, un­der the academy, is highly ap­pre­ci­ated by in­ter­na­tional or­gan­i­sa­tions, and is a lead­ing tourist des­ti­na­tion in the cap­i­tal, as well as a use­ful venue for host­ing ar­chae­o­log­i­cal events.

The city’s health­care de­vel­op­ment plan calls for 91 new projects in the 2016-20 pe­riod. Of that num­ber, the Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal and On­col­ogy Hos­pi­tal, built solely from state funds,

The dis­cov­ery of Stone Age relics in An Kheâ - Gia Lai, and the sub­se­quent exhibition held by the academy, was se­lected as one of 10 key sci­en­tific events in 2016-17. The exhibition re­in­forced the im­por­tant role of hu­man­i­ties in science and tech­nol­ogy.

The academy’s in­ter­na­tional re­searches also carry in­ter­na­tional ex­pe­ri­ence, pro­vid­ing use­ful sug­ges­tions for the de­vel­op­ment and im­ple­men­ta­tion of the coun­try’s re­form and de­vel­op­ment poli­cies, said Thuaná .

The academy so far has 20 works win­ning the Hoà Chí Minh Award and 26 works win­ning the State award on science and tech­nol­ogy.

Chair­woman Ngaân said that be­sides the achieve­ments, the academy still had lim­i­ta­tions in ba­sic re­search and ap­plied re­search, as well as in coun­sel­ing and pol­icy review and hu­man re­source train­ing.

Em­pha­sis­ing that in the con­text of the coun­try fac­ing both ad­van­tages, op­por­tu­ni­ties, dif­fi­cul­ties and chal­lenges, NA Chair­woman Ngaân proposed that, in or­der to bet­ter ful­fill its tasks, the academy should con­tinue to fo­cus on the­o­ret­i­cal and prac­ti­cal issues of de­vel­op­ment, ac­cel­er­at­ing in­dus­tri­al­i­sa­tion and mod­erni­sa­tion.

It should re­search new the­o­ret­i­cal and prac­ti­cal issues the opened this year.

The other 88 projects funded from the city’s bud­get and other re­sources are un­der con­struc­tion.

Mean­while, the project to build a new head­quar­ters for the coun­try faces from now to 2030 and pro­vide sci­en­tific ar­gu­ments for the lead­er­ship of the Party and the State to use while go­ing through the next stage in de­vel­op­ment.

The academy should ac­tively pro­mote the so­cial­i­sa­tion of sci­en­tific re­search so that the re­search re­sults can spread widely to all classes of peo­ple, es­pe­cially young peo­ple, thereby help­ing them be­come more aware and more ac­tive, and re­spect the na­tion’s his­tor­i­cal and cul­tural val­ues.

The academy should widen in­ter­na­tional pub­li­ca­tion of sci­en­tific re­search re­sults, and re­alise the ob­jec­tive of build­ing the aca­demic in­sti­tute into a cen­tre for re­search and train­ing in the so­cial sci­ences, hu­man sci­ences and pres­ti­gious in­ter­na­tional sci­ences in the re­gion.

Also on May 17, NA Chair­woman Nganâ at­tended the 43rd an­niver­sary of the found­ing of the Vi­etä Nam Academy of Science and Tech­nol­ogy (VAST), the lead­ing sci­en­tific re­search in­sti­tu­tion in the coun­try in the field of nat­u­ral sci­ences and tech­no­log­i­cal de­vel­op­ment.

Cur­rently, the academy is tak­ing the lead in im­ple­ment­ing many im­por­tant pro­grammes and projects in­clud­ing the space science pro­gramme, the earth­quake and tsunami alert cen­tre, and stem cell tech­nol­ogy for med­i­cal treat­ment.

Nganâ ex­pressed­her­be­liefthat the academy will con­tinue its great achieve­ments, con­tribut­ing to the growth and sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment of the coun­try. The academy she said will suc­cess­fully achieve the goal of be­com­ing the coun­try’s top sci­en­tific re­search and de­vel­op­ment cen­tre by 2020.

Nganâ pro­posedthatVASTpro­mote the ap­pli­ca­tion of re­search re­sults, along­side sci­en­tific and tech­no­log­i­cal achieve­ments in the pro­duc­tion and life of peo­ple, and the com­mer­cial­i­sa­tion of sci­en­tific prod­ucts for so­cio-eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment.

VAST should set up a sci­en­tific hu­man re­source de­vel­op­ment strat­egy that will fit the con­text of global com­pe­ti­tion in the field, in or­der to pro­duce a staff that will meet the re­quired level of com­pe­tence for its de­vel­op­ment in the new pe­riod.

Ngaân stressed that VAST should also pro­mote do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional sci­en­tific and tech­no­log­i­cal co­op­er­a­tion, as well as joint re­search with strategic part­ners and more tech­no­log­i­cally ad­vanced coun­tries.

The academy should take the ini­tia­tive in propos­ing to the State ap­pro­pri­ate poli­cies to solve ur­gent prob­lems, and for­mu­late strate­gies for the sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment of the coun­try, she said. — VNS
