Dr. Ha Huu Phuc  highly appreciated the great efforts of UEF on building and maintaining useful academic exchange activities like Plus 3 for the last six years.
Plus 3 is considered as one of the leading academic exchange  programs in Vietnam, providing students of both schools great chances to study the cultures, languages, and people which, in turn, would boost up the tie between the two countries – Vietnam and US. 
Dr. Phuc hopes that both schools would involve in further cooperations in education and training apart from Plus 3. 
After the greeting of UEF leaders, both parties reviewed their sweet memories over the past 6 years.
