In 2019, the number of Vietnamese students at Meiko Network Japan’s schools was up to 130, but due to the impact of the Covid-19 epidemic, now there are only about 40 people left.
President Yamashita said that he has known the reputation and prestige of Hanoi University in foreign language training activities both in Vietnam and the world. Therefore, he expressed his wish to soon promote the signing of a cooperation agreement with Hanoi University to bring the best benefits to both sides for mutual development. He hopes that after the cooperation, the two sides would conduct joint programs with Japanese businesses. The Meiko Network Corporation is always ready and would dedicate its best resources to Hanoi University.
On behalf of Hanoi University, President Nguyen Van Trao also introduced to President Yamashita and the meeting participants a brief history of the University. With its first Japanese programme established in 1973, Hanoi University is proud to be one of the two most experienced higher education institutions in Japanese language training in Vietnam. With the policy of internationalization, Hanoi University is ready to cooperate with all partners around the world, in which priority is always given to partners from Japan.
President Nguyen Van Trao fully agreed with the potential proposals of President Yamashita when the two sides signed the cooperation agreement. Hanoi University is willing to join Meiko Network to apply for government-level Japanese training projects. The President wishes that Meiko Network will support annual activities of the two sides such as “expressive reading in Japanese”. Hanoi University is also committed to promoting the image of the Meiko Network in Vietnam.
