The Ministry of Education and Training (MoET) states that in the upcoming academic year, universities in Vietnam must stop using unsuitable subject combinations to accept new students.

Vietnam has risen three places to rank 42th out of the 129 nations and economies in the Global Innovation Index 2019 (GII 2019), according to the announcement of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) yesterday in India.
The Vietnam trade balance in the first eight months of 2018 showed a surplus of $2.8 billion. Yet, if counted only the export turnover in August, there is a trade deficit of nearly $100 million, which is a worrisome warning.
