Making speech at the ceremony, National Assembly Chairman – Mr. Vuong Dinh Hue stated: To strive to achieve the goal of turning our country into a developed, socialist-oriented country in the middle of the twenty-first century, as set out by the XIII Congress Document, our Party has identified and promoted the endogenous strength and mode of national development in the new context; in which, scientific and technological knowledge and innovation are endogenous factors, especially important motivation. In order to further arouse the passion for research, creativity, and promote the development of science and technology in the country, I suggest that you pay attention to the following issues:
Firstly, focus on improving the quality and prestige of the Awards, Contests and Competitions; continue to focus on projects and solutions in the fields of science and technology with high applicability; a number of interdisciplinary fields between natural science and engineering science and technology; fields: mechanical automation, material technology, information technology, electronics and telecommunications; biology for production and life; technologies to respond to climate change, protect the environment and rationally use resources; save energy and use new energy. Thereby, for science and technology to truly become a direct productive force; At the same time, the Awards, Contests and Contests are really associated with achievements, results and achievements of scientific and technological products.
Secondly, science and technology development are the cause of the entire Party and people, in which cadres and party members must pioneer and set a good example of "dare to think, dare to do, dare to break through" because general career; intellectuals and entrepreneurs play a pivotal role in labor and creativity; promote the role of the subject and great creativity of the People. Therefore, it is necessary for the cooperation of localities across the country to develop science and technology. Localities need to set out policies to encourage talent through the organization of Awards, Competitions, Competitions by the Vifotec Foundation as a standing agency; from there, discover individuals with talents to foster, valuable topics and solutions to apply in real life; associated with the start-up and innovation movement, contributing to the development of local science and technology and contributing to the general movement of the whole country.
Thirdly, in order for the Fund to continue to have many worthy rewards for scientists, researchers, creators and inventors, it is necessary to have a mechanism, especially in terms of finance, that is more suitable for the Fund. The Vifotec Foundation is requested to coordinate with relevant ministries, branches, agencies and organizations to perfect the financial mechanism, develop preferential policies for creative talents, supporting the nurturing of talents so that the movement can achieve national and international scientific and technological achievements.
At the same time, the Vifotec Foundation needs to build a synchronous and professional communication system in order to propagate so that the whole society can understand and participate in intellectual honoring activities; popularize the award-winning works to come to life fastest; support innovators in promoting products abroad, scientific and technological cooperation with countries with developed science and technology background. The organization recognizes and honors the contributions of scientists and inventors who have made great contributions to the country's socio-economic development in the process of international economic integration.
The Chairman of the National Assembly expressed: “The significantly proud tradition of 30 years of establishment and development will be the driving force that strengthens the Vifotec Foundation to operate, developed exactly like the 8 golden words General Vo Nguyen Giap donated to the Fund "Science - Justice - Integrity - Efficiency". I believe that, the Vifotec Foundation will continue to lay the foundation for the passion for science and technology research among people from all walks of life, arousing the creative passion of the young generation across the country, helping them become future owners and inventors, making important contributions to building a prosperous and developing country."
