On 10 May, 2019, in Quang Ngai province, the Vietnam Union of Science and Technology Associations (VUSTA) coordinated with the Quang Ngai Provincial Union of Science and Technology Associations to hold the workshop on enhancing the capacity of making reports on social consultancy and evaluation. The workshop was attended by representatives from units of social consultancy and evaluation, Organization Unit, Communication and Knowledge Dissemination Commission under VUSTA, some leaders of unions of science and technology associations of provinces of central region - central highlands, member associations of Quang Ngai Provincial Union of Science and Technology Associations. Dr. Phan Tung Mau, the Vice President cum the Chairman of Inspection Committee of VUSTA and Mr. Le Quang Thich, the President of Quang Ngai Provincial Union of Science and Technology Associations did chair the workshop.

Since the initial stage right after VUSTA’s establishment, social consultancy and evaluation of VUSTA have been always considered a significant task.  The phrase of "social consultancy and evaluation" was stated for the first time in Directive 35-CT / TW dated 11 April, 1988 of Secretariat Committee of Party Central Committee, session VI. The independent role of social consultancy and evaluation of VUSTA and its member associations has been gradually confirmed and institutionalized through many policies and legal documents of the Party and the State for over 30 years. Today, we can say that Directive No. 42-CT / TW dated 16 April, 2010 of the Politburo on "continuing to innovate and improve the quality and effectiveness of operation of the Vietnam Union of Science and Technology Associations during the period of national industrialization and modernization" and Decision no. 14 / QD-TTg dated 14 February, 2014 of the Prime Minister on “social consultancy and evaluation of VUSTA” are the most powerful legal basis of the Party and the Government for the activities of social consultancy and evaluation of VUSTA and its member associations.
