The Central Committee of the Party for 2020 - 2025

Solidarity - Humanity - Quality - Creativity - Integration

UT-HCMC, at the age of 34, is confronted with numerous opportunities and challenges. These are the consequences of current rules and regulations; the effects of old, subsidized and enforced thought. The old management model's stagnation is the result of objective and subjective factors that have pushed UT-HCMC into its most challenging circumstances in the last 33 years. In particular, the Covid-19 epidemic has had a devastating impact on all facets of social life. Especially, the income of officials, lecturers and staff has been drastically reduced.

Despite the tremendous difficulties, UT-HCMC’s officials, lecturers and staff have determined that this is merely a minor obstacle among many. More importantly, we must join hands and share together to overcome this difficult time.

The year 2021 will be one of the most advantageous. This is the first year that the Resolution of the 13th National Party Congress has been put into effect. For the Education and Training industry, there are a number of significant factors to consider. In particular, university autonomy is an inevitable trend that will boost initiative and flexibility across the fields, from training to scientific research to organizing infrastructure, personnel, finances, etc.

With a 33-year tradition of establishment and development, thanks to a team of officials and lecturers who are eager to learn, understand the application of science and technology, and acquire new and rapid advances in the world to be able to apply well in educating and training, UT-HCMC will be able to quickly overcome the current difficult period. The lifestyles of the officials, lecturers and staff will undoubtedly improve in the future.

On behalf of UT-HCMC’s Board of Presidents, I would like to express my sincere and deep gratitude to all officials, lecturers, staff and students for enthusiasm, creativity and determination in completing the university’s teaching, learning and other activities in the context of the Covid 19 pandemic’s massive impact.

Based on belief, pride of UT-HCMC’s honorable tradition and determination, all officials, lecturers, staff and students will always endeavor to lift the school to a new and considerable height in the next 5 years in the framework of the country's educational reform and the impact of the fourth Industrial Revolution have begun in all areas of life.

On this special occasion, I would really like to wish generations of UT-HCMC’s officials, lecturers, staff and students good health, happiness and success in their efforts to further the dramatic reform process in Transport sector and economic growth during the integration period.

Sincerely thanks and best regards.
