2012 World Congress in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

Invited by the World Federation of Colleges and Polytechnics (WFCP) and Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC), Dr. Pham Tiet Khanh, Rector of Tra Vinh University (TVU) and President of Vietnam Association of Community Colleges (VACC), attended 2012 World Congress in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada from May 26 to May 29, 2012. This was the seventh WFCP World Congress with the theme “Driving the Global Economy” stimulating dialogue on the profound influence of education on societies, economies and urban and rural communities. Over 1,200 institutional leaders, senior government officials, international partners, faculty and students gathered in Halifax. The ACCC Annual Conference was integrated into the WFCP event.

Before attending the Opening Ceremony of 2012 World Congress, Dr. Khanh had precious opportunities to meet with TVU and VACC current as well as potential partners to discuss more about the possibilities for both enhancing the existing international collaborations and establishing the new ones with them.


Meeting with Prof. Dr. Truong Vo-Van, President of Canada-Vietnam Education Network and Chair of the Department of Physics of Concordia University, Dr. Khanh extended his thanks to Dr. Truong for his considerable supports to TVU in particular and to Vietnamese Education in general so far.
