Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city in Viet Nam and is an important national economic and cultural hub while Son La is the capital city of Son La Province in north-western Viet Nam.

The UNESCO's recognition is not only a source of pride for Viet Nam but also signifies international acknowledgment of the commendable efforts made by the cities in promoting lifelong learning among their local residents, said Ambassador Nguyen Thi Van Anh, who is Viet Nam's permanent representative to the UNESCO.

The event reflects specific and appropriate measures in the implementation of policies and guidelines set by the Party and the state regarding international integration, promoting learning, and fostering talent.

This is aimed at building a learning society and elevating Viet Nam's overall quality of education and human resources.

Earlier, in 2020, Sa Dec City in the Mekong Delta province of Dong Thap and Vinh City in the north-central province of Nghe An entered the network.

In 2022, another city in Dong Thap, Cao Lanh, also achieved the same status.

The evaluation is based on 42 criteria related to the development of a city committed to lifelong learning./.
