Presenting an opening speech, Assoc.Prof.Dr. Do Van Xe praised the timeliness of Youth Union to hold a meaningful activity to introduce the ASEAN Community to students. At the same time, he was pleased that the majority of students were interested to know current situation in the country, in the region and on the world. However, Vice Rector noted that "when Vietnam increasingly integrates into the world, the human competence may be exactly assessed". Therefore, students, future young workers, must make efforts to study and train. Besides the knowledge which they have obtained from the University, they must actively equip themselves which languages and skills needed to integrate into ASEAN Community in particular and the world in general.

With inquisitive spirit, CTU students will be fully aware of the meaning of ASEAN Community establishment, understand customs, traditions, culture, education, socio-economics of ASEAN Community and be ready for integration and development steps.
