Professor Jyh Ching Juang, who led the NCKU delegation, said his university has strengths in the study of health and technology, while Can Tho city is making all-out efforts to improve the quality of the local medical sector and to become an industrialised city by 2020.

This is the favourable condition for engagements between the two universities in scientific research and exchange of students and teachers, he noted.

Ha Thanh Toan, rector of Can Tho University, said cooperation with the NCKU would open up opportunities for boosting the quality of the regional workforce in health and technology, which remain small.

Joint research projects will focus on pharmaceutical manufacturing and the treatment of difficult diseases, as well as the construction of high-tech machines serving agricultural development in the Mekong Delta.

As part of the meeting, NCKU representatives introduced the university’s scholarships to students at the Can Tho University.
