Center for Education and Development (CED) is a dynamic group of experienced scientists, training specialists, educators, and development specialists, committed to education and development causes in Vietnam. The group has worked together for many years to conduct research and create and implement programs in education, training, and development to serve the needs of a rapidly developing Vietnam. With projects in two interrelated, mutually reinforcing program areas, Education and Development, CED works to develop innovative solutions and initiatives with a wide range of partners in the public and private sectors in Vietnam.
