In addition to the achievements, there were still some shortcomings which need to be thoroughly addressed. Specifically, the scientific research and technology transfer failed to meet the intended targets in terms of quantity and quality. The scientific research was not in line with practical needs of teaching and serving the society. Apart from the revenue generated mainly by tuition fees, the revenues from research and technology transfer were still modest and did not commensurate with the potential of the facilities as well as the highly qualified academic staff. The foreign language proficiency of some academic staff members was still limited. The support and service staff lacked soft skills, especially communication or interaction skills. They were also short of initiative and creativity at work. After the summary report on the university’s operations in 2020, Mr. Phan Hong Hai presented the draft content of the 2021 Internal Expenditure Regulations.
Attending the conference, Mr. Tran Quang Huy, on behalf of VUIT, gave an orientation speech.

The university has boasted its strong development in recent years and has created a high quality workforce. He also told the university officials and workers to try harder to achieve the objectives and goals for 2021, to pay attention to the targets in the resolutions of the Party Congress of different levels celebrating the 70th anniversary of the MOIT’s traditions, to create a stimulating working environment for the university staff and to continue to promote its strengths, contributing to the development of the country.
