Science and Technology - driving force for socio-economic development

Science and technology have been considered a leading driver of the country’s socio-economic development.

Deputy Minister of Science and Technology Tran Quoc Khanh made the remark at the National Science and Technology Week in Da Nang on May 8.   

The three-day event offered an excellent opportunity to disseminate new policies on science and technology, introduce new advances at home and abroad and raise public awareness about the pivotal role of science and technology in the country’s progress and development, said Khanh.

He added that it also encouraged people’s enthusiasm for science, aiming to develop highly qualified human resources and meet the requirements of the country’s modernisation and industrialisation process.

Throughout the week, the Ministry of Science and Technology will co-ordinate with Danang University, the provincial Department of Science and Technology to showcase achievements in scientific research, organise an exchange with students and hold an international seminar on communications, science and technology.
