In November, 2014, Asian Affairs Center and the Vietnamese community at MU welcomed the visits of separate delegations from the Vietnamese National Institute of Medicinal Materials (NIMM) and the Vietnam Institute of Agricultural Engineering and Post-Harvest Technology (VIAEP).

NIMM came to MU to pursue research collaborations in medical plants while VIAEP was interested in learning about equipment and methodologies for analyzing certain biological substances in several types of vegetables.
