At the conference, Ass. Prof. Dr. Pham Ngoc Linh reaffirmed the role of the Vietnam Union of Science and Technology Associations (VUSTA) as the largest representative organization of intellectuals, experts, and the scientific and technological community in Vietnam. With a wide network both domestically and internationally, including 156 member associations, 600 scientific research and technology development units, 73 newspapers and magazines with over 500 publications, VUSTA regularly carries out advisory, consultancy and social evaluation tasks; scientific research and technological development; dissemination of scientific and technological knowledge; and the application of technological advancements in production and daily life.
Although becoming an official member of the ISC since 1963, VUSTA's activities within this mechanism have not been particularly prominent. Therefore, in the near future, VUSTA will prioritize promoting even more active engagement in the international scientific community through exchange activities and scientific collaborations within the framework of ISC's comprehensive programs.
