The Socialist Republic of Vietnam has become the eighth country to join the Council of the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT). According to an official communication from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Royal Thai Government, the AIT Charter comes into force for Vietnam on 8 June 2012.

Vietnam became the first ASEAN country to deposit the Instrument of Accession with the Government of Thailand on 10 May 2012. With this, the strength of the AIT Council has risen to eight countries including Kingdom of Sweden, Japan, Republic of India, Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka, Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, Republic of Bangladesh, and Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

The AIT Charter was signed on 25 August 2010 in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Thailand, when 12 countries and one intergovernmental organization signed the AIT Charter. The signatories included People’s Republic of Bangladesh, Kingdom of Cambodia, Republic of India, Japan, Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Republic of Philippines, Republic of Seychelles, Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka, Kingdom of Sweden, Kingdom of Thailand, Democratic Republic of Timor Leste, and United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM).

Subsequently, on 20 January 2011, Republic of Indonesia became the fourteenth signatory of the Charter. Vietnam is the fifteenth signatory, and the eighth country to deposit the Instrument of Accession with the Royal Thai Government.

The AIT Charter, which confers the status of an International Organization to AIT, came into effect from 30 January 2012.

AIT’s association with Vietnam is deep-rooted, and the Institute was conferred the “2006 Friendship Order” by the Government of Vietnam for contributing toward human resource development in the country.

AIT has produced 2,741 alumni from Vietnam and trained 15,000 Vietnamese nationals in various short-term training courses. AIT Center in Vietnam (AIT-VN) was established in 1993 following an agreement between the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET), Vietnam, and AIT with the support from Governments of Belgium and Finland.

AIT-VN has centers in three cities in Vietnam, namely Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Can Tho.
