In the context of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, science-technology cooperation in health care and pharmaceuticals is one of the important fields Vietnam is promoting. At the 10th Vietnam-US Joint Committee Meeting on Science and Technology in Washington DC last week, the two countries agreed to enhance science-technology collaboration on health care and health sciences besides partnership in agriculture and biotechnology, and environmental conservation science. Judith Garber, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Oceans, International Environmental and Scientific Affairs at the US Department of State, highly valued bilateral cooperation achievements, particularly in the Global Health Security Agenda, the Field Epidemiology Training Programme, the biological threat reduction programme, and the research project on cancer prevention and treatment. In early October, Olga Lidia Tapia Iglesias, Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba Central Committee and head of the Central Committee’s Department of Science, Education and Sports, had a working session with the Vietnamese Ministry of Science and Technology (MoST) to review joint research projects capitalising on the countries’ science-technology advantages.
