City tourism industry lacks skilled human resource

The Department of Education and Training and Tourism Schools in Ho Chi Minh City have agreed to form a general council of principals and set rules for trainees in the tourism industry, to improve quality and standards.

There are around 50 schools offering tourism courses in the City, however, the number of trained tourism students can meet only 60 percent of the demand.

Every year, the tourism industry needs to recruit around 45,000 people but these schools are able to provide only 15,000. Not to mention that travel companies have to re-train most of their employees as they fail to meet requirements in skills and foreign language knowledge.
