Professor Le Tuan Hoa made the claim at a ceremony held on Saturday to review its two-year performance.

Also addressing the event, Minister of Science and Technology Nguyen Quan assured that, along with the National Key Programme on Maths Development, VIASM is contributing towards a better future for maths in Viet Nam.

He said his ministry would prioritise the development of five science-technology fields, including maths research.

Over the past two years, VIASM has attracted 137 researchers, including 40 foreign and overseas Vietnamese mathematicians. It has also published 21 research papers in prestigious foreign maths magazines and held 17 short-term training courses.

The institute organised eight conferences and workshops, notably the France- Viet Nam maths conference in the central city of Hue and the eighth National Mathematical Congress in the southern city of Nha Trang, with some 700 delegates taking part.

In addition, a number of scholarships have been awarded to students excelling in maths and science.
