< Congratulatory Speeches by Guests of Honor >

Mr. Tran Viet Thanh
Deputy Minister of Science and Technology

The Y-E-S Award has been helpful to develop an ideal environment to foster and deploy outstanding engineers and researchers throughout the country. This award is now considered by young, promising engineers and scientists as a springboard that leads to their future playground. After five years of its implementation, the award has attracted a lot of students from our six affiliated universities. There have been 330 students participating in the award and 50 students receiving awards. Therefore, the award has been received very high appreciation from our educational agency, media and social communities. I hope this award will help awardees following their dreams, reaching their goals and being a part of Vietnamese science and technology. We wish the students to be successful on their way you choose.
Mr. Koji Onishi
General Director
Honda Vietnam Co., Ltd.

This is the 15th year for Honda Viet Nam (HVN). With the motto, "Be a company that the society wants it to exist", we have not only delivered high-quality products but engaged in other activities to help develop the Vietnamese society. Because education determines the future of a country, HVN has focused its efforts on educational support, and the Y-E-S Award is a very successful outcome. The award, marking its 5th year with help from NISTPASS and the Honda Foundation, has become a prestigious prize that many Vietnamese students aim to win as one of their biggest goals. I hope the award will continue to be a great encouragement for young talents.
