Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh had a meeting with VietTech NZ, a New Zealand-based association of Vietnamese professionals in tech and digital initiatives, on Sunday morning (local time), to discuss cooperation in high-quality information technology (IT) human resource development.

The working session was conducted in Auckland as part of the PM’s visit to the Oceanian country through Monday at the invitation of his New Zealand counterpart Christopher Luxon.

Also attending the meeting were Vietnam’s Minister of Education and Training Nguyen Kim Son, Minister of Science and Technology Huynh Thanh Dat, and Minister of Foreign Affairs Bui Thanh Son, among others.

Pham Dang Khoa, director of New Zealand-based technological group CodeHQ and founder of VietTechNZ, along with his staff, briefed the PM on the technology industry in New Zealand, future development directions, and opportunities for cooperation in medical technology, educational technology, and other areas.

Khoa also presented several suggestions and recommendations, with a particular focus on high-quality human resource training and development orientations for technology companies.

PM Chinh thanked the members of VietTechNZ for their enthusiastic and valuable opinions, derived from their dynamic, creative, and aspirational practical experiences in New Zealand.

He regarded these contributions as valuable inputs for their homeland.

The Vietnamese leader stated that such opinions have played a crucial role in shaping directions and solutions for the development of education, training, science, technology, and innovation in Vietnam.

Emphasizing the significance of human resources in achieving success, PM Chinh highly valued VietTechNZ's efforts in uniting Vietnamese intellectuals in New Zealand.

He acknowledged that their network's operations have significantly contributed to the overall success of the Vietnamese community in the host country.

The Vietnamese government chief recommended that VietTechNZ put forth a proposal to the New Zealand authorities for the official recognition of the association's legal status.

He suggested VietTechNZ act as a bridge to facilitate collaboration between organizations and partners from both countries, fostering connections between the educational systems of New Zealand and Vietnam.

This includes facilitating the training of Vietnamese students in New Zealand.

PM Chinh urged VietTechNZ to enhance collaboration across various sectors, including information technology, digital transformation, chip engineer training, agriculture, climate change response, architecture, construction, biological technologies, and health.

He directed the foreign ministry to swiftly prepare a plan for organizing a forum in Vietnam that brings together overseas Vietnamese intellectuals and experts.

The ministries of Science and Technology, Education and Training, and Planning and Investment were instructed to establish online channels for receiving opinions and recommendations from overseas Vietnamese scientists.
