At the 25th Anniversary of Kovalevskaia Prize in Vietnam


Hanoi, 12th March 2010


Distinguished guests!


In the joyful atmosphere of the country on the occasion of the new lunar year, together with the celebration of women to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the International Women’s Day 8th March and 1970th year of Hai Ba Trung’s Uprising, today, at the Center for Women and Development – the common roof of Vietnamese women, Vietnam Kovalevskaia Prize Committee organized the 25th Anniversary of Kovalevskaia Prize in Vietnam. This is an opportunity for us to look back the development road of the Prize as well as the great contribution of women scientists in Vietnam to the national construction and development.


On behalf of the Prize Committee, I would like to send my best regards to leaders of the Party, State, ministries, departments, agencies, international friends, participants, former and present members of Prize Committee and women scientists winners from 1985 until now.


Especially, I would like to warmly welcome Dr. Neal and Ann Koblitz, the founders and sponsors of Kovalevskaia Fund who traveled from the U.S to Vietnam to attend the meeting with us today.


Distinguished guests,


On the occasion of the International Women’s Day 8th March, many meetings, get-togethers, dialogues are organized everywhere in Vietnam to congratulate women cadres, women workers, women entrepreneurs as well as to express the love and respect to women in general who occupy a half of Vietnam’s population.They are mothers, sisters and wives of being “good both in family and society”. They are the happiness of the families. At the meeting today, once again, we have the opportunity to recognize and praise women’s contribution, specifically women intellectual’s contribution to Vietnam.


I hope that the 25thAnniversary of Kovalevskaia Prize will be forceful evidence of the ability as well as the role ofVietnamese women in the social fieldwhich people often think that is a place for men. I would like to say that is the field of science and scientific research.


Maybe, many of us are not satisfactory with the work that Vietnamese women have achieved in this important field. Furthermore, to meet with the demand of the national development, women must strive more so that Vietnam can keep up with the international and regional development and soon reach to a society of development and civilization from promoting the intellectual economy.


Nevertheless, women intellectuals have done a lot of work during the last time. We are proud of that many women were awarded with prizes. That achievements give us a strong belief that if we have will and determination as well as we receive more and more attention from the Party, the State, ministries, departments at all levels, besides the support of husbands and children, Vietnamese women intellectuals will be developed. As a result, the education level of women in the society will be improved and women will have greater contribution to the national construction and defense.


Forms of emulation and prize-awarding are stimulating and encouraging methods which bring in many positive results to the society. With this meaning, I wish Kovalevskaia Prize to continue its activities and operation in Vietnam and gain more fruitful achievements in the coming time.


I would like to wish you all with the best wishes.

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."
