University of Medicine and Pharmacy in the Red River Delta province of Thai
Binh hosted a ceremony on June 16 to receive Friendship Orders bestowed by the
Kingdom of Cambodia on the university staff and 12 lecturers.

Established in 1968 with its original name as

human resources, transfer science-technology and provide public healthcare
services and products to care for and protect people’s health.

In 1982, the university was entrusted by the
State to train doctors for Cambodia.

Assoc. Prof. Dr Hoang Nang Trong, rector of the
university, said over the past 35 years the university has always created the
best conditions for foreign students, including those from Cambodia, to pursue
their studies. It has trained 426 Cambodian students to become doctors, he

In the 2016-2017 school years, the university
received 26 more Cambodian students, increasing the total number of Cambodian
students studying at the university to 178, he noted.

Most of them pursue education under the signed
agreement between the Vietnamese and Cambodian governments, he said.

Cambodian Ambassador to Vietnam Prak Nguon Hong
spoke highly of the cooperation in medical training between the university and
his country.

Many Cambodian doctors trained at the university
have made active contributions to the country’s public healthcare, he noted,
stressing that this demonstrates the deep friendship, solidarity and mutual
assistance between the two neighbouring nations over the past five decades.

On the occasion, the Cambodian Embassy in
Vietnam presented the friendship orders to the university staff and its 12
outstanding lecturers.

The same day, the university held a graduation
ceremony for 31 Lao and Cambodian students.-VNA
