The first lecture in the fourth year with the topic of “Development process of Japanese economy and trading companies - Response to changes and importance of human training,” sponsored by Sumitomo Corporation, was opened at the National Economics University (NEU), Hanoi on September 21, 2011.
The keynote speaker for this programme is Mr Tadashi Takimoto, Director of Research Institute, Sumitomo Corporation. NEU lecturers will also address the training course.
Also in this programme, Sumitomo Corporation will award 40 scholarships, worth US$300 each, to NEU students and hand over certificates of credits for the third-year students attending all three previous lectures.
Sumitomo-funded programme aims at developing high-quality human resources for Vietnam in the context of international economic integration following the Japanese visit by former President Nguyen Minh Triet in November 2007,
In March 2008 in Hanoi, the Ministry of Education and Training, the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI), Sumitomo Corporation, and Sumitomo Vietnam Company signed a memorandum of understanding on implementation of the above programme. NEU was chosen to carry out the programme. Accordingly in four years (2008-2012), Sumitomo Corporation sponsors the organization of three lectures each year, with main audience being young business managers, economics and business administration students in Hanoi. Students attending all three lectures each year are awarded certificates by NEU and Sumitomo Corporation.
The keynote topic of the programme is “Administration in global corporations.” Lectures will focus on such contents as “The history of Sumitomo Corporation and integrating trading companies," "Japanese economic development: Process and obstacles to be overcome," "Corporate governance and corporate social responsibility," "Environmental issues in global business." Since November 2008, NEU has organised the programme in three past years.
