How do you see your country changing over the next few decades?
Alright, the first thing I should mention is that I am so proud to be a Vietnamese young people, a heroism nation having more than 4 thousand years of history during which my ancestors has defeated a range of enemies. As you know, being considered as a third world country, Vietnam is on the way of developing by following the direction of a unique Communist Party which is founded by Uncle Ho. I suppose I should highlight the fact that Uncle Ho has cited 3 major obstacles of our state: colonist, famine and illiterate which are equivalent to 3 sectors: national defense, economy and education.
Initially, I guess that we might begin to see the changing on the safety policy in comparison to the past. In fact, the worry on the frontier is the hottest topic after some sensible activities of the giant neighbor China who has been the traditional invader. In my perspective, Vietnam prepared willing to make friend with all other countries in basing on a good will of cooperation, friendship and equality.
As well as this, I could say that enrich the mother land is the only way to possess a glorious position in the world podium. I would predict that we will most likely build a modern infrastructure system which contains various skyscrapers, highway system, nuclear power station, international harbors and airports, export production zones, international free trade zones… and maybe an ASEAN trade centre. In addition, it looks quite probable that we are going to take the major role in the zone in many sectors in exploiting the nature, culture and human resources. For example: a tourism centre of the zone where the guest could discover almost cultures and costumes of Asia or plunge in nature monuments; an international intermediate port which link the West and the East, the North and the South… It seems to me that industry and services sectors will rocket faster than agriculture, especially high-tech industry. Moreover, Vietnam will become a considerable location in the globalization economy map.
In addition to what I have just said, it could even be possible that we will see the arrival of a humanity education that teach young people less knowledge and more skill; that bring them practicable lessons, that supply patriotism loving kindness and compassion, that conduct them to follow a positive, creative life… Actually, Vietnamese people have followed the Confucius education for centuries so they believe certainly that knowledge is the main force to change the world.
Sure, I have always an optimistic overview on the future. Follow my experiences and observations; the next generation is intelligent, ambitious to have ability to revolutionize the mother land.
