President, Kanazawa Gakuin University

The Y-E-S Award in Vietnam has marked its 3rd year. It aims to contribute towards Asian countries to bring up science, technology, and industry leaders of the next generation. Thanks to its success here in Vietnam, the program has grown to expand to three other countries: India, Laos, and Cambodia. I would like to reiterate our sincere gratitude to all of those Vietnamese people who have supported and worked with us. This award could not be so successful without your involvement. I sincerely hope the awardees today would grasp their opportunity in Japan for further research and study, and after their return, we hope they become to contribute towards the development of Vietnam.
