This is a project highly promoted by EU and Kingdom of Belgium for the cooperation between EU and Belgium - Vietnam in the near future.
Meanwhile, the ambassador asked MoET to support the projects of French-speaking community and the Wallonie-Bruxell region. One of them is the preschool education development project in Quang Nam.
