Vietnam is striving to have its vocational education with the same level of ASEAN-4 countries by 2030 and reach the level of G20 countries by 2045.
This is the goal set out at a seminar on the development of vocational education and training strategies in the 2021-2030 period held in Ha Noi on June 16.
Vietnam has integrated deeply into the world with many new generation free trade agreements. There would be a clear change in labor demand as a result. High-quality labor will replace unskilled workers. However, the current situation shows an opposite result with the proportion of trained workers being too low, making up only 21.9% in 2018.
By 2030, vocational education needs to forecast demand in skilled workers in terms of fields and training levels to improve the efficiency of training.
Given that, the Prime Minister has signed a directive on promoting the development of skilled labor force as a way to improve labor productivity and increase national competitiveness in the new situation.
