Accordingly, 78,000 jobs await laborers in the third quarter and 70,000 in the fourth quarter. The majority of laborers will be recruited in mechanics, architecture and construction technology, information and technology, logistics - import and export, automobile and motorbike technology, management, accounting and auditing, chemical and services.

According to representatives from FALMI and the city Department of Labor, War-Invalids and Social Affairs, businesses often give priority to high quality, skilled and trained human resources, as they will help businesses increase competitiveness and accelerate the speed of growth.

Over the past two years, the city has increased the number of trained laborers from 72% to 78%, helping some 3.4 of 4 million laborers be trained, especially those working in hi-tech, services and key industrial sectors.

“From now until 2020, we will re-arrange the vocational training system by building 12 high quality schools and dissolving ineffective ones,” said Le Minh Tan, Head of the city Department of Labor, War-Invalids and Social Affairs. “The training of laburers will continue to be based on businesses’ demand.”
