He said that VNUHCM received about 3,000 Korean students to study and exchange for short-term each year, accounting for 85% of foreign students studying at VNUHCM.

“After the visit of Mr.Kwon Young-jin-the Mayor of Daegu City to Ho Chi Minh City in 2016, chances to cooperate between the two cities has been increased. Therefore, VNUHCM is looking forward to promoting the cooperation programs with universities and educational institutions of Daegu City, especially in the fields of education, research and student exchange. “- Dr. Nguyen Duc Nghia emphasized.

“I learned that the Korean Faculty of VNUHCM-University of Social Sciences and Humanities is a place for Korean language training for Vietnamese people, providing professional resources in Korean language and culture. These students will contribute to build a solid foundation for the friendship and develop the cooperation between the two countries in general and Ho Chi Minh City-Daegu City in particular, “said Song Kichan.

After the ceremony, Daegu students would attend a presentation on Vietnamese culture, and visit some famous sites in Ho Chi Minh City.
