The Embassy of Finland in Vietnam on Saturday joined hands with the HCMC government to present the book “Finnish Lessons 2.0: What can the world learn from educational change in Finland?” to exemplary teachers on Nguyen Van Binh Book Street in the city center.

As part of a series of activities to mark the 45th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between Vietnam and Finland, the book presentation was meant to accelerate growing ties between the two nations and demonstrate Finland’s strong commitment to supporting Vietnam’s educational development.

The book, written by Finnish educator Pasi Sahlberg, introduces readers how Finland has had the world’s best education system in the past four decades.

Addressing the ceremony on the book street, Finnish Ambassador to Vietnam Kari Kahiluoto said education is one of the key factors contributing to economic growth of Finland and making the country an ideal destination for thousands of students from around the world.

He expressed his joy over the growing and fruitful ties between Vietnam and Finland, especially in the field of education.

The Finnish ambassador told the Daily at the event that the Embassy of Finland in Vietnam last year organized a variety of cultural and entertainment activities in the country to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Finland.

This year, exchanges of many high-level visits between Vietnam and Finland will be strengthened to mark the remarkable milestone of diplomatic relations between the two nations, he added.
