Message from SEAMEO RETRAC Board of Directors

Warmest greetings from SEAMEO RETRAC Board of Directors!

Vietnam, re-admitted as a SEAMEO Member Country on February 10, 1992, by the SEAMEO Council, hosts the SEAMEO Regional Training Center (SEAMEO RETRAC) in Ho Chi Minh City. SEAMEO RETRAC started its very first operations in October, 1996. Since its founding, the Center has experienced its share of successes as well as difficulties and lessons. It has, however, in the end, seen the development of a full-fledged regional center with all the responsibilities, opportunities as well as challenges in the wake of globalization and internationalization.
