Secretary of the municipal Party Committee Nguyen Thien Nhan said the city’s labour productivity now triples the country’s average while the population accounts for 10 percent of the total but contributes to nearly 25 percent of the country’s gross regional domestic product (GRDP).

In order to maintain its central role, the city needs to take the lead in improving workforce quality, he said, adding that it is the top out of the seven breakthrough programmes to achieve rapid and sustainable development.

He revealed that HCM City will work out specific action programmes on international-standard workforce training in several areas, possibly in technology and artificial intelligence, automation and robotics, health, corporate governance, finance – banking, and tourism.

Ho Chi Minh City is now home to 54 universities, 52 colleges, 64 trade schools, 82 vocational training centres.

Nhan suggested that the municipal People’s Committee should consider establishing an advisory council in the field with the participation of foreign experts, and issuing financial mechanisms in support of learners.

The city will also step up public-private partnership across seven fields, including improvement of foreign language teaching and learning, lecturer training, international-standard curricula, education quality verification, school management, start-up programmes and technology transfer.
