ABSTRACT ▼

The 21st century witnesses a noticeable trend in world development, that is, the advancement of the knowledge economy, economic globalization and information society. The basis for this rising transformation is the significant upsurge of science and technology (S&T) in many fields, especially in the information technology. The S&T revolution, together with innovations in the field of education and training, has been making ways for cooperation among countries across many levels.
As a result, the development strategy of Vietnam has regarded S&T development and the advancement in education and training as national priorities and key motivations for sustainable development. Nevertheless, as a latecomer, Vietnam has seen a number of difficulties and challenges in the integration and globalization trend.
A strategic roadmap, therefore, is critical for a successful international integration, implementation of S&T, as well as educational training development strategy, contributing to the industrialization, modernization and sustainable development for the nation .
