The government of Vietnam has given the green light to the development of Tam Anh University in Long An Province, which borders Ho Chi Minh City, according to a decision signed by Deputy Prime Minister Tran Hong Ha on Wednesday.
The Ministry of Education and Training was told to team up with relevant agencies to appraise a plan to develop the university as per prevailing regulations and report to the government for consideration.
Tam Anh University, whose investor is Tam Anh General Hospital JSC, is slated to get off the ground in 2024, requiring an estimated VND2 trillion (US$85 million) in investment.
The university will offer a range of courses across various disciplines, with a focus on medicine and healthcare.
Tam Anh General Hospital JSC’s current partnership with many major global pharmaceutical firms is expected to pave the way for the university to facilitate international cooperation in training and scientific research.
The university is expected to contribute to training high-quality human resources in the healthcare sector in particular and other fields.
The People’s Committee of Long An earlier wrote to the Ministry of Education and Training saying that the development of Tam Anh University aligned with the province’s planning for the 2021-30 period, with a vision toward 2050, and would meet the demand for high-quality human resources in the province and other localities nationwide.
