Addressing the ceremony, Dr. Nguyen Cao Tri - President of Van Lang University said: "Ha Long University is a very young, yet potential, university. It has been developed on land which blessed by nature. With the current leading fields of Van Lang University e.g., Architecture, Environment, Tourism, Language, etc., we are incubating many potential and valuable projects for the locality for lecturers and students from both institutions."
