On Sunday President Phuc met with officials and employees of the Vietnamese Embassy and the Vietnamese community in Korea in Seoul, as part of his State visit.
“The biggest issue is to raise the intellectual level of Vietnamese people in a developed country like the Republic of Korea, not just unskilled workers, although they are also necessary. In the era of Industry 4.0, innovation, education, and high-quality are vital. The number of students, innovators, and start-ups must increase from which there will likely be Vietnamese unicorns,” said Mr. Phuc.
