To this end, USSH would like to develop more cooperative relations with foreign partners in researching and teaching different disciplines.

In response, Prof. Martin Kovár said he was grateful for being warmly welcomed and able to discuss opportunities for cooperation. He said extending relations with Vietnam's universities is one of the important objectives of Charles University at Prague and also the Czech Republic. He suggested developing relations with USSH in social sciences and humanities such as history, philosophy, political science and literature.

Prof. Pham Quang Minh highly appreciated the goodwill of Prof. Martin Kovár. The Rector said, in 2016, USSH signed a memorandum of understanding with Faculty of Arts, Charles University. This is a good foundation for extending relations with other faculties as well.
