Professor Doctor Pham Tat Dong, Vice President of the Vietnam Learning Promotion Association, said:“Equal education for all is an issue that received the close attention of President Ho Chi Minh when he established the Communist Party of Vietnam. The value of that idea persists today. Encouraging self-study and lifelong learning as the President urged is very important. Adult education is a key element of a learning society.”

Nguyen Manh Cam, President of the Vietnam Learning Promotion Association, suggested that scientists, educators, and policy makers thoroughly study the thoughts of those leaders to shape policies that support a learning society.
