SEAC seeks to foster world-leading academic and policy research with a focus on the Southeast Asian social and political landscape.

Thus, in this visit, Dr. Jurgen Haacke would like to discuss with USSH's scholars and researchers about the issues concerning Southeast Asia in general and Vietnam in particular.

In response, Prof. Dr Pham Quang Minh said he was honored to welcome and willing to share his knowledge and perspectives with Dr. Jurgen Haacke, which he said was in conjunction with USSH's strategy of internationalization and strengthening international relations. The two professors then discussed in an open and friendly way about such issues as Vietnam's policy towards the UK in relation with that towards other countries and territories; Vietnam's views on the UK's role in Southeast Asia's regional order; the possibility of establishing a comprehensive dialogue partnership between the UK and ASEAN; and Vietnam's policies and viewpoints on the issue of military alignment.
