Early this month, in the presence of Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, RMIT University announced the next phase of RMIT's commitment to Vietnam, which includes a strategic investment fund worth more than $165.2 million.
Andrew Goledzinowski, Australian Ambassador to Vietnam said, “RMIT is not only a pioneer in education cooperation between Vietnam and Australia, but also a standard setting for educational outcomes and cooperation."
“The collaboration will become even more extensive in the future. Organisations like RMIT not only teach students; they also collaborate with government, society, and other organisations to do research that improves community results,” Goledzinowski said.
The university will utilise this grant to invest in education, research, and cooperation activities, as well as the school's infrastructure, therefore supporting the RMIT Innovation and Business Connection Centre in Hanoi, where local partners and international specialists may share ideas.
In tandem with the university's undergraduate and graduate programmes, the centre will contribute to the development of a more skilled and adaptable workforce through short-term education solutions and employee training courses.
Nguyen Thanh Phuong, general director of Sao Do Group, had the opportunity to discuss with the Australian Prime Minister about the educational collaboration between Sao Do Group and the university after the training project during the announcement event.
Following the success of the initial pilot, Sao Do and RMIT are presently working on a plan to create a human resources training institute in the northern port city of Haiphong.

Sao Do Group has chosen RMIT University to collaborate and fund the execution of a training programme on professional skills in logistics and production for 80 company managers in Haiphong's industrial zones.
This is RMIT's first pilot training programme in Haiphong on capacity building and professional skills for managers in logistics and manufacturing firms, which are in high demand in the city.
Through Sao Do Group’s sponsored course, RMIT University has provided students with in-depth and practical knowledge to improve work performance and human resources for employees and enterprises, with the goal of building and developing a national logistics service centre by 2025.

This pilot programme covers two vital skills, “influential communication” and “financial management,” with a focus on skill improvement, new staff training, and administration of industrial zones, including Nam Dinh Vu Industrial Park (IP), which belongs to the Sao Do Group.
|The success of the course will provide good impetus for Sao Do Group to pursue more education assistance initiatives with RMIT University. |
Leveraging an international seaport invested Sao Do Group and Gemadept Group within Nam Dinh Vu area, typical logistics clients constitute a logistics ecosystem in Nam Dinh Vu IP.
“The collaboration with RMIT University not only helps to improve the quality of human resources in this field in Haiphong, but it also serves the needs of Sao Do Group and its partners,” Phuong said.
The success of the course, with strong backing from Haiphong administration, will provide good impetus for Sao Do Group to pursue more education assistance initiatives with RMIT University.
