DUE Lecturer Utilize Expertise in Local Policy Consultation and Planning


Recently, Assoc. Prof. Bui Quang Binh (lecturer at the Faculty of Economics) was honored by the People's Committee of Phu Yen Province for "Contributions to the Provincial Planning for Phu Yen Province for the Period 2021 - 2030, with a Vision to 2050." This recognition is a result of relentless efforts, ranging from teaching, scientific research to participation in consultancy activities and policy planning at local levels, as well as at ministries and sectors, by Assoc. Prof. Bui Quang Binh, a lecturer, expert, and scholar.

According to Assoc. Prof. Bui Quang Binh, "Contributing ideas and criticisms to construct mechanisms and policies for socio-economic development for provincial authorities in the Central region and the entire country, particularly the planning of provinces for the period 2021-2030 and the vision towards 2050, is both an honor and a responsibility to fulfill the university's mission. As a lecturer at a leading university of economics nationwide, being invited by localities to participate in policy critiques, especially in their mid-term planning process, is an affirmation of the society's recognition and high esteem for the university."

Assoc. Prof. Bui Quang Binh shares about participating in contributing critical opinions to build mechanisms and policies for socio-economic development for the governments of provinces and cities in the Central region

For each locality, provincial planning holds strategic significance, serving as the developmental orientation for the province; it represents the commitment of local authorities to build and develop the locality in cooperation with the government, businesses, and citizens. It acts as a legal document to ensure and support socio-economic activities within the area, particularly in attracting and adjusting resources. Businesses decide on investments based on the Provincial Planning. For citizens, the planning represents the government's commitment to their participation in business activities and guides them on how to enhance their quality of life. Provincial planning is crucial, not only providing direction within a locality but also connecting different localities to create a unified development area, avoiding fragmentation and competition, added Assoc. Prof. Bui Quang Binh.

The role and mission of the University of Economics - Da Nang University (DUE) go beyond teaching and training human resources; they also involve participating in policy-making processes, following a research-oriented development direction. Through this, lecturers have more opportunities to delve deeper, grasp tightly the specialized knowledge they are teaching, and timely adjust and supplement with new knowledge. "As a lecturer, one needs to listen; through listening and discussing, one can understand reality. Reality is very different and sometimes daunting. I attend seminars when invited, and contribute my opinions to them. If my contributions are beneficial to localities, I will be invited to participate in subsequent projects. However, what's important is what I gather from reality, the experience gained. Expressing oneself for others to understand is not easy. One must strongly apply existing theoretical foundations but based on reality, intertwining theory with practice to evaluate," shared Assoc. Prof. Binh.

The University of Economics - Da Nang University always focuses on investing resources in human capital and research infrastructure; enhancing cooperation among colleges and universities both domestically and internationally; developing connections with departments, bureaus, industries, business associations, and enterprises; and fostering the development of research staff and research centers. This will serve as a bridge for the university's scientific research activities while aiming to build and develop the University of Economics, Da Nang University, in a research-oriented direction, creating an advanced academic environment, nurturing and developing talents, and addressing socio-economic challenges to serve the prosperous development of the community.
