cabinet’s members to contribute opinions in writing to the plan. The
drafting board was requested to collect opinions and report them to the
Government’s Party committee for further debating before submitting to
the Party Central Committee for approval.

At the meeting,
participants gave their opinions on key contents of the plan, such as
raising efficiency of investment for education development; new
methods and forms of tests and examinations to evaluate the quality of
education, developing the national education and training system along
the direction of life-long learning and a learning society.

The discussion also focused on financial policies and mechanisms for the
sector and public contribution to education development.

correcting the imbalanced in the structure of training, improving
