At the end of the working visit, Mr. Naoyoshi Ayaka conveyed his deep gratitude to the representatives of VNUA and the Center for Manpower Supply for their warm welcome and enthusiastic cooperation. Nagasaki has always considered Vietnam National University of Agriculture as a close partner and tried to provide supports to VNUA’s students in opening up better job opportunities in the future. This is a good opportunity for not only VNUA’s students but also students from other universities and other high-quality human resources to study and work in Nagasaki, Japan, which will equip them with valuable experiences to build their homeland when they return from Japan.
