Therefore, the 2016 International workshop on metro tunneling, underground and foundation technologies “2016 KICT workshop” was an opportunity for construction experts, engineers, scientists, and enterprises of Vietnam and Korea in the sector of tunnel, underground and foundation construction sector to meet, share experiences, and exchange ideas as well as to cooperate for development.
“We hope the cooperation among scientists and engineers of Korea and Vietnam will be increasingly expansive, and comprehensive, including application and transfer of construction technologies between Korea and Vietnam. From Vietnamese side, we will research, select and apply construction technologies that match with Vietnamese conditions” - PhD. Minh said.
