Ambassador Bertrand Lortholary shared a plan for building the European Management School (EMS) in Vietnam with three degree levels of Bachelor's, Master's and PhD. 

City Party chief Nguyen Thien Nhan acclaimed cooperation projects, especially establishment of the French House which would contribute enhancing bilateral relationships as well as cooperation investment between Ho Chi Minh City and France.
