Sweden looks set to increase bilateral cooperation with Vietnam in innovation, science and technology
In a recent statement, the Swedish Embassy in Hanoi reaffirmed its commitment to increase bilateral cooperation with Vietnam in innovation, science and technology.
Sweden is still one of the most innovative countries in the world according to the Global Innovation Index (GII). After being ranked number 2 in the world ranking 2021, Sweden maintains its decade-long tradition of being among the three leading countries in innovation, the embassy said.
The embassy noted that Vietnam has risen steadily since 2013 and has maintained its top position among lower middle-income economies and 44th overall on the Global Innovation Index. GII also points to Vietnam as one of four economies with the potential to change the global innovation landscape, the embassy said.
Innovation is an integral part of overcoming common challenges and creating a better future for all, including coming out of the current covid-19 pandemic stronger.
“For Team Sweden, we look forward to exploring ways to increase the impact of our bilateral cooperation with Vietnam in innovation, science and technology by collaborating with authorities, authorities, industry, companies and academia,” the embassy concluded.
