PM Chinh said the Government is very interested in the safe opening of schools.

However, in the context of complicated developments of the pandemic, many students do not have computers for their online study, and in many places, the internet network is unstable or there is no connection, he said.

According to the PM, online learning and teaching is a new education method, which require educators, psychologists and teachers to suitably adjust teaching methods and contents.

He requested the Ministry of Health to coordinate with the Ministry of Education and Training, relevant sectors and localities to accelerate COVID-19 vaccination for children.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Information and Communications was asked to work with the Ministry of Education and Training, relevant ministries and sectors, and localities to ensure internet connection for online teaching and learning.

At the ceremony, over 1 million computers worth 2.5 trillion VND (over 109.6 million USD), and 3 trillion VND (over 131.5 million USD) to provide mobile services, were presented to the progamme./.
