Vietnam’s secret sauce – its young people and their iPads

In a commentary, SMU Professor of Communication and Technology and Vice President (Partnerships and Engagement) Lim Sun Sun and Viet Anh Vu, Director of SMU’s Overseas Centre Ho Chi Minh City, discussed how Vietnam's ambitious youth can help the country realise its growth potential. They noted the entire country’s push for educational excellence at the national level, and outlined the opportunities and challenges for Vietnamese youth. It was noted that Mr Vu, who had grown up in Vietnam, studied in Europe and worked in Singapore, was motivated to return home to help build up the country’s education system. He hopes to provide Vietnamese youth with the mentorship that he himself had lacked. He also seeks to promote a two-way talent exchange between Singapore and Vietnam as the country tries to realise its economic potential.
