Dr. Le Nguyen Tue Hang, DTU Vice - Provost, said: "Dong-A University and DTU have established a strong partnership over the years, and the Academic Exchange Program is part of a series of interactive and collaborative activities between the two institutions. One notable aspect of the partnership is that the Hero of Labor, Distinguished Teacher Le Cong Co, DTU Chairman, has been awarded an Honorary Doctorate by Dong-A University. Therefore, welcoming Dong-A University delegation feels like welcoming my own family members. I hope that during the exchange when faculty and students from both universities work together, they will achieve positive outcomes. At the same time, I also hope that this academic exchange program will open up more opportunities for academic and research collaborations between the two entities."
