In 1986, the government of Vietnam undertook a policy termed “doi moi,” which literally means "change and newness," resulting in a shift in the country from being a centrally planned economy to a market economy. Although there has been a steady pattern of faculty exchanges and graduate students from universities all across Vietnam, new relationships are developing with several universities.
A list of Vietnamese institutions of higher education is available.
Auburn University has particularly strong relationships with Can Tho University, among others.
Nha Trang University hosted a 2008 fisheries economics and trade conference attended by Dr. Curtis Jolly, chair of the Department of Agricultural Economics and Rural Sociology, and several graduate students. Auburn University students and faculty have many opportunities to collaborate.
Several College of Agriculture faculty and students visited Van Lang University in 2008. Van Lang was the first nation of the ancient Vietnamese people, and existed until 258 BCE. It was ruled by the Hùng Kings. Its history is mostly myth and legend, as little reliable historical information is available.
