Welcoming PM Nguyen Tan Dung, Ms. Irina Bokova regards his visit as a manifestation of a close relationship between the UNESCO and Viet Nam.

She appraised the concerns of the Vietnamese Government in enhancing the cooperation between Viet Nam and the UNESCO in all fields.

Viet Nam plays a crucial role in promoting knowledge and cooperation between UNESCO country members and makes great contribution to preserving and upholding cultural values in launching Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), especially in terms of education, sustainable development, environmental protection and climate change adaption, she said.

She congratulated Viet Nam for being elected to the UNESCO Executive Council in 2015-2019 for the fourth time.

Since Viet Nam became a member of the UNESCO in 1976, Viet Nam has actively established trusted cooperative relations with the UNESCO and its members, stated PM Dung, adding that the UNESCO has also made realistic contributions to each household, locality and population community in Viet Nam.

Viet Nam will do its utmost to show its role as an active and responsible member of the international community as well as launch independent and comprehensive integration policies, he affirmed.

He hoped that the UNESCO will continue its assistance for Viet Nam in training human resources in the culture domain and advocating Viet Nam’s world heritage recognition.

The occasion, PM Nguyen Tan Dung witnessed the signing of a Viet Nam-UNESCO cooperative program in the 2016-2020 phase.
