Pointing out various difficulties and challenges that the university has faced during the process of fundamental and comprehensive innovation of education in the context of low economic potential, the ability of the State budget and people’s revenue, he appreciated its efforts in finding out appropriate directions.

He asked students and young lecturers from the university to promote their pioneering spirit in studying and creating in order to grasp and master knowledge.

The youths should set an example in the movements of ‘good people, good deeds’ and spread cultural attitudes and spirit, as well as criticise and gradually abandon bad habits, added the Deputy PM.
