During six years since its start the Y-E-S Award program has been an engine to pick up and foster young talents in science and technology. We have had 50 awardees so far, and many of them are studying abroad in either a master's course or a doctor's course.
I continued to join the selection committee this year, and found it very difficult to choose the brightest from applicants who are in more diverse, highly specialized areas of study than last year. I understand most awardees actively participate in off-campus social activities. Also I am glad that the applicants include brilliant students not only from urban areas, but from rural areas and economically challenged environments.
Let me offer my sincere congratulations to all the awardees and their academic supervisors. This award system offers an additional opportunity, the Y-E-S Plus, and I hope it will be used by as many of the awardees as possible to continue their postgraduate study in Japan.
Mr. Koji Onishi
General Director, Honda Vietnam Co., Ltd.

Nearly fifteen years have passed since we started Honda Vietnam. To become "a company people want it to exist," we have provided high-quality products and services to customers. We have also taken part in various other activities that we think would help the progress of Vietnamese society.
In particular, as evidenced in this Y-E-S Award program, our focused efforts have been directed to educational area because a great part of this country's future lies in the improvements in education.
In its sixth year the Y-E-S Award is recognized as one of the major goals for university students in Vietnam. We hope it will continue to encourage young talents and push them toward the fulfillment of their dreams. Lastly I sincerely hope each one of the awardees here will succeed in his or her chosen path.
