Research and training centre for community development (RTCCD)
RTCCD was established in May 1996. The strategic idea for the development of the organization first came from Dr. Tran Tuan and was then supported by four social scientists. They were Dr. Nguyen Trong Bao (director of the Center for Support of Social Development Programs-SUSODEP and director of RTCCD 1996-98), Mr. Le Quoc Hung (currently the chairman of the Community Development Group and vice director of RTCCD 1996-present), Dr. Vu The Long (former senior researcher of the Institute of Archaeology and vice director of RTCCD 1996-98) and Mr. Hoang Quang Viet (currently vice general director of the Hoa Phat enterprise and vice director of RTCCD 1996-2004). During the first two years after establishment, RTCCD operated under the legal guardianship of SUSODEP. In September 1998, RTCCD was officially recognized as an independent research institution for community development in Vietnam, following the issuing of Decision No. 677/TC-LHH on 25 September 1998 by the Vietnam Union of Science and Technology Associations and of Decision No. A340 on 25 January 1999 by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment Vietnam.
On 05 April 2007, RTCCD’s proposal for the opening the RTCCD regional office in Hue was approved by VUSTA (Decision No.484/QD-LHH, 05/04/2007). Dr Huong Thi Minh Tran, RTCCD vice director was nominated to be responsible for running the RTCCD regional office.
