2018. 9.4-8 JICA – Can Tho University capacity building project

Table of Content

As part of the Can Tho University capacity building project supported by JICA, I took a business trip to Can Tho University in Vietnam on the itinerary from September 4 to 8, 2018. The outbound route was 9/4 JL 079 HND/SGN 01:25/05:15, and the return route was 9/7 JL070 SGN/HND 23:25/06:55+1. From Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City to Can Tho City, it takes approximately 3 hours to 4 hours by car. The time has been shortened considerably since the Can Tho bridge was constructed. The hotel I stayed at was Ninh Kieu 2 (designated by JICA), and the exchange rate was 100 JPY = 20,000+ VND. I was surprised that the rate was much better than two years ago.
At Can Tho University, I am in charge of Climate Change and Delta Management, a new graduate program to be launched. Also, we plan to work on collaborative research on functions of mangrove forests.
