The iconic school is a testimony to the friendship and cooperation between Vietnam and the Netherlands.

Meeting with the students, the Prime Minister of the Netherlands said that Hanoi is a beautiful city with many old buildings.

He told them about his experience of cycling with Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh and said that Hanoi has undergone significant, positive, and dynamic changes in recent years.

At the event, Mark Rutte answered the students' questions about climate change, robotics in production, and other topics.

Prime Minister Mark said that robots are not the biggest challenge to the traditional labor market.

He believed that robots would increase competition in the labor market, create new opportunities in areas where machines cannot perform, and drive people to upgrade their skills.

Regarding responses to climate change, he said that young generations are very aware of changes in the weather.

He hoped that one day the students present at the event would be able to start companies and find ways and solutions to fight climate change.

Most importantly, Prime Minister Mark Rutte advised the students to follow their hearts and try to explore and maximize their talents.

The energy to make dreams come true comes from families, he said.

At the meeting, the Dutch Prime Minister painted a picture of lotus and tulip, the two traditional flowers of Vietnam and the Netherlands, and took group photos with the students.

The Hanoi-Amsterdam High School for Gifted Students was established in 1972 with the support of the authorities and people of Amsterdam.

The school was upgraded in 1985 and has remained one of the leading high schools in Vietnam.
