Vietnam, Cambodia forge cooperation in training

Cooperation in personnel training dominated a meeting between leaders of the National Bank of Cambodia (NBC) and the Banking University of Ho Chi Minh City (BUH) on January 21.

The Cambodian delegation is on a working visit to Vietnam at the invitation of the Governor of the State Bank of Vietnam Nguyen Van Binh. 

At the HCM City meeting, Nguyen Anh Tu, Deputy Director of the BUH’s International Cooperation Department, expressed his hope that the visit will contribute to boosting cooperation in training and research between the university and the NBC’s units, thus helping realise cooperation agreements reached by the two banks’ governors. 

Since the signing of a memorandum of understanding on training cooperation between the BUH and the NBC’s Training Centre in March 2012, the Vietnamese university has launched four courses for Cambodian banking officials in the country. 

Another programme on training finance-banking graduates is scheduled to be implemented for NBC staff in the near future, he said. 

Earlier on January 17, NBC Governor Chea Chanto and Binh devoted a lot of time during their talks in Hanoi to discuss cooperation in human resource development. 

The two sides exchanged experience in supervising the banking system, managing the monetary policy and preventing dollarisation.
