Dean of the Faculty of Tourism Pham Hong Long briefly introduced the establishment process, the training program of the Faculty of Tourism Studies as well as some contents that the two sides can cooperate. Assoc. Prof. Dr. Pham Hong Long shared: The Faculty of Tourism Studies of the University of Social Sciences and Humanities was the first institution in Vietnam to train in tourism at all three levels from bachelor, master to doctorate. Every year, the Faculty enrolls about 200 students in two majors Tourism and Travel Service Management and Hotel Management. With the knowledge and skills training at the University as well as the good ability in foreign languages, graduates have very wide career opportunities: continuing to study at a higher level in the country or abroad; working at centers, research institutes, government agencies, tourism management ministries, or companies, private enterprises, joint ventures, foreign countries in the field of tourism and travel. Every year, the Faculty of Tourism conducts very effective cooperation activities in exchanging students and lecturers, organizing short courses, or accepting students to practice and practice with many universities, schools, and educational institutions in the world and in the region, including a number of schools in Japan.

Faculty students, during their studies as well as after graduation, have the desire to study and work in universities and enterprises in Japan, both to improve their income levels and to have the opportunity to exchange, study abroad, and improve their foreign language. However, at present, the majority of students still do not meet the requirements for Japanese language proficiency because, during their study at the Faculty, they mainly use English. Therefore, through the connecting role of the JICA Office in Vietnam, the University and the Faculty of Tourism hope to cooperate with many Japanese partners in teaching Japanese as well as training in the field of tourism.
Delegates participating in the JICA mission exchanged and proposed a number of contents that the two sides can cooperate on organizing Japanese language classes and linking and cooperating with companies and enterprises in Japan, or Japanese enterprises in Vietnam to support skills training for students, connect so that many students have the opportunity to study and improve their qualifications in Japan.
