HANOI, November 20, 2014 -- Today 200 businesswomen from across Vietnam gathered in Hanoi to advance their leadership skills for sustainable business growth and to better understand the business environment during Vietnam´s period of international integration and development. The forum was supported by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), in partnership with the Hanoi Association for Women Entrepreneurs (HNEW).

“Bringing together so many dedicated businesswomen from across Vietnam, highlights the importance of advancing leadership skills for women entrepreneurs nationwide,” said USAID Mission Director, Joakim Parker. “Women entrepreneurs have the potential to drive Vietnam’s development and growth. This forum should help improve their ability to respond to opportunities in Vietnam’s economic transition, including foreign investment, the Trans-Pacific Partnership and engagement with the One ASEAN Economic Community.”

There is no one model for successful PPPs in general or in support of innovation in engineering education in particular. But many of Vietnam's challenges and the principles I've described at least begin to be addressed by the very effort to form alliances of government, business and educational institutions. We can make a contribution just by trying, and USAID is enthusiastic about trying.

Scouring local markets to examine fish species is not where Dr. Dang Thuy Binh expected to find herself.  She dreamed of being a journalist but was inspired by her mother to study biology, for which she later found her great passion, especially marine biodiversity and conservation.

Dr. Nguyen Thi Hong Minh gives a whole new meaning to cutting edge. To understand why, you only need to look at her title: Vice Dean of the Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST), School of Mechanical Engineering - Material Cutting and Industrial Instrument Department.

It's more than a mouthful, but it's also a statement of her resolve in going where few women in Vietnam, at least so far, dare to tread. She and only one other professor represent women in her department's 18-strong faculty. She's hoping that one day this will change.
