Deputy Minister of Science and Technology Pham Cong Tac said: Funding for the project is being provided by the National Foundation for Science and Technology Development Fund (NAFOSTED). This is also one of the first science and technology tasks performed using the method of contracting expenses to the final product.

The project is being carried out by nearly 300 scientists from history, research and teaching institutions across the country, mainly at universities in Hanoi, Thua Thien Hue and Ho Chi Minh City.

Deputy Minister Pham Cong Tac emphasized that this is the first time a project this large in terms of its research scale and scope has received the attention of domestic, foreign and local scholars.

At the reception, representatives of the research groups reported on the implementation process as well as the content of each task in the project. After its receipt, the manuscript will be appraised by experts to assess and accept the project's topics. The manuscript will continue to be adjusted according to expert opinion and the conclusions of the Scientific Council, to ensure the compilation’s quality and the consistency of the previous Vietnamese History book collection when published.

Speaking at the ceremony, Deputy PM Vu Duc Dam emphasised that this is a very important national scientific topic. The research to publish a National History collection and Encyclopedia has just completed the grassroots level tasks and there will be many steps in publishing the National History - Encyclopedia.

The results of the project handed over today are the hard work and tireless contributions of historical scientists, including the late Professor Phan Huy Le, who envisaged the project as the crystallization of "the soul of the mountain river", living forever with time.
