In order to strengthen institutional ties for technical training, educational exchange and policy development around issues of regional governance, urban sustainability and land use, on October 21st, 2016, one MOU has been signed between Danang Institute for Socio-Economic development (DISED) and The Vietnam-Oregon Initiative of Portland State University (VOI-PSU).

The Vietnam Oregon Initiative (VOI) was established in 2014 with the intent of leveraging the existing diverse relationships across government, business, and academic sectors between the State of Oregon and Vietnam for mutual trust and deepened partnerships. The Vietnam-Oregon partnership was formalized in October, 2015 when Oregon Governor Kate Brown and Director General of Vietnam’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs Nguyen Ba Hung signed a Letter of Intentto further strengthen cooperation.

Portland State University (PSU) is a public state urban university located in downtown Portland, Oregon, United States. Founded in 1946, the university has been ranked among the best universities in the United States for its renowned programs in sustainable development, innovation, government leadership & management, science and technology and business.

The primary areas of focus for the collaboration under this MOU includes:  urban and rural land use issues (e.g., housing, transportation, ecotourism, poverty, inequality, environment and public services); best and next best practices in Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM); professional trainings and education exchanges that advance innovative urban-rural sustainable policies, mechanisms and governance practices. Beside, VOI will continue to support the City of Da Nang in establishing friendly and mutually beneficial relations with the State of Oregon, METRO (Oregon urban region) and the City of Portland.

Leaders of two sides expected that with this official MOU, cooperation between two Institutes will be more and more effectively, bringing benefits and sustainable development for both Danang city, Vietnam and Portland city, America.
