A Vietnam Innovation Network in the Republic of Korea (VINK) is slated to make its debut on July 31, according to the Vietnamese Ministry of Science and Technology (MoST).
The agency, part of the Vietnam Innovation Network, is hoped to contribute to promoting innovation activities amongst the Vietnamese community in the East Asian nation and cooperation between Vietnam and the RoK in the field.
The Government assigned the establishment of VINK to the Ministry of Planning and Investment together with the MoST and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
