The 2011-2020 socio-economic development strategy has set the orientation: "Development and quality improvement of human resources, especially high-quality ones, are a strategic breakthrough." The 2011-2020 education development strategy aims to thoroughly grasp and concretize the guidelines and orientations for education and training renewal, contributing to successfully implementing the 6th National Party Congress's resolution and the 2011-2020 national socio-economic development strategy.
