On March 18, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh welcomed Mr. Thomas Vallely, Chairman of Fulbright University Vietnam’s Governing Board and Director of the Vietnam Program at Harvard University, and senior faculty from Fulbright University Vietnam.

The Government of Vietnam attaches importance to strengthening economic and development policy dialogue and consultation with the world’s leading research institutions, said Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh during the reception for Mr. Thomas Vallely.

The Prime Minister spoke highly of Mr. Vallely’s initiative to establish the Vietnam Executive Leadership Program (VELP) – a platform for discussing socio-economic development issues in Vietnam.

He suggested the VELP should focus discussions on such topics as green growth, sustainable energy development, institutional building, innovation, and public-private partnership in order to put forward recommendations to the Government.

For his part, Mr. Vallely highly valued Vietnam’s groundbreaking commitments at the COP26, affirming his strong support for Vietnam in climate change adaptation and acceleration of green growth.

Vallely founded the Harvard Vietnam Program in 1989 and established the Fulbright Economics Teaching Program (FETP)in Ho Chi Minh City in 1994. FETP was later developed into Fulbright School of Public Policy and Management, the first academic unit of Fulbright University Vietnam.

He leveraged the Vietnam Program’s research to engage in a candid and constructively critical dialogue with the Vietnamese government about the strategic challenges confronting the country.

Under his leadership, the Fulbright school emerged as a center of excellence in public policy research and teaching and a pioneer in the development of new modes of institutional governance in Vietnam.
