At the ceremony, Mr. Nicolas Warnery, Ambassador of the Republic of France to Vietnam, emphasized that the establishment of the new school council is an important event for USTH because its members include "wise men" who will jointly come up with medium and long-term policies for the future development of the University. The Ambassador believes that the University Council with a high degree of tenure will help the university thrive in the current and future competitive research environment.
Speaking at the ceremony, two professors Jean-Marc Lavest and Chu Hoang Ha deeply thanked Prof. Acad.
