Quality of workforce still low- Minister

Vietnam always confirmed that it has abundant workforce that can meet the requirements of economic-social development in the future, however, the quality of the country’s workforce is now a thorny problem, said Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan, Minister of Labor Invalids and Social Affairs.

The minister Ngan September 3 discussed the implementation of policies related to working abroad with supervisors of the National Assembly’s Standing Committee .

The low quality of workers also leads to difficulties in labor exports, said Mrs. Ngan.

Besides, enterprises should pay attention to the rights and interests of workers, she added.

To solve problem, the Government and the ministry need to improve vocational training programs, aiming to approach the world labor market.

To date, Vietnam has 500,000 laborers working in 40 countries and territories.
