Agriculture and microbiology scientists receive Kovalevskaia awards
Posted: May 19,2006
Ha Thi Khiet - President of Viet Nam Women's Union and Doctor Nguyen Thi Hong

The Kovalevskaia Awards 2005 went to a doctor of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and a group of staff from the Viet Nam Institute of Science and Technology. The awards, made in recognition of females whose scientific studies are highly practically applicable, were presented to the recipients at a ceremony in Ha Noi on May 18.

Doctor Nguyen Thi Hong, head of the Electromechanics and Post-harvest Technology Institute, has conducted 12 scientific studies on mechanical engineering to raise agricultural productivity during her 30-year working experience. The studies have been applied in 16 provinces across the country and four provinces in Laos.

The Petrol Microorganism Department was also honoured with the prestigious award for their contribution to the containment of microorganisms' detrimental effects on the preservation and exploration of oil and petrol. After 15 years of operation, the department has carried out five projects at the central level and 19 studies at the grassroots levels. It has become the first unit in Viet Nam able to collect data on microorganism fauna in oil wells and petrol products, bringing solutions to address environmental pollution and improve the preservation of petrol products.

Over the past 20 years, the Viet Nam Kovalevskaia Fund has presented awards to 28 devoted individuals and 12 scientific research teams.

Present at the award ceremony were Nguyen Thi Binh, former State Vice President and Chairperson of the Viet Nam's Kovalevskaia Award Committee, and Ha Thi Khiet, President of both the Viet Nam Women's Union and the National Committee for the Advancement of Vietnamese Women.

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."

(Excerpted from President Ho Chi Minh's speech on the 36th Anniversary of Vietnam Women's Union 20 October 1966)
