At the ceremony, the representative of GNU was Prof. Byoung-Kuk Na, director of BK21FOUR Center for Human Resource Development in Bio-Health Industry. The representatives of IMPE-Quy Nhon included Assoc.Prof. Ho Van Hoang, Director, Dr. Huynh Hong Quang, Vice Director, leaders and staff members from departments of Epidemiology, Research & Treatment, Entomology, Molecular Biology, Parasitology, Specialist Clinic and International Cooperation.

In spite of the difference in geography and language, the two countries are similar regarding to the people, history and culture. Assoc.Prof. Hoang expressed his joy and impression of the economic, social, and scientific development that the beautiful Korea has achieved in the past years. With these achievements, Korea has become the fourth largest economy in Asia and the tenth in the World, rising to become a developed country with a high position in the region and the world. Especially, Korea is o­ne of the leading countries in many fields, including Bio-Health Industry.

On the basis of cultural similarities and mutual support in science and technology, especially in medical science, as well as sharing mutual benefits for the peace and development of each country, Assoc. Prof. Ho Van Hoang hope that in the coming time, Professor Byoung Kuk-Na and Gyeongsang National Medical University will cooperate with and support IMPE Quy Nhon in malaria and tropical infectious diseases elimination in Central Vietnam.

In addition, Assoc.Prof. Ho Van Hoang emphasized that IMPE-QN has constantly considered the international connectivity with institutes/universities in scientific research as a matter of great interest. He also believed that the cooperation between IMPE-QN and GNU would be achieved good and sustainable development steps in the future. The signing ceremony marked an important milestone in the cooperation between IMPE-QN and GNU (RoK). This event would be much more meaningful as Viet Nam and Republic of Korea (RoK) were going to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries (December 22, 1992 - December 22, 2022).

To ensure that the collaborative efforts between the two parties are implemented promptly and effectively, the director of IMPE-QN also proposed that immediately after the signing ceremony, both parties should proceed to develop a detailed plan for the activities discussed to be carried out in 2022, and agree o­n the activities for the following years.

Department of Parasitology and Tropical Medicine of the College of Medicine of GNU has had an effective medical training and research collaboration in studying malarial parasites? genetics, molecular-based drug resistant malaria, and other human parasites via new approaches in recent years. These studies have revealed molecular approaches to detect emerging multi-drug resistant malaria in countries in the Greater Mekong Subregion, including Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Viet Nam, providing important data for developing of interventional strategies for the Malaria Elimination Roadmap.

After the ceremony, two sides shared specialized knowledge through a joint scientific seminar. The reports presented at the seminar, which were involved in the Institute's areas of concern such as malaria epidemiology, molecular biology, helminthology, malaria vector control, dengue fever and vector-borne diseases, have helped the members of GNU gain a deeper understanding of the burden of health issues in the Central Highlands of Viet Nam.
