Economic zone desperate for trained workforce

HA NOI (VNS)— Deputy PM Nguyen Thien Nhan yesterday ordered central Ha Tinh Province agencies to co-operate with Vung Ang Economic Zone enterprises to make quarterly reviews of their work-force demands.

The Deputy PM said this would enable local training centres to train workers for the economic zone enterprises.

With Government approval, the Ministry of Education and Training and provincial People’s Committee have assigned local training centres to educate 2,400 young people to serve the zone’s labour demand.

It has also established a centre to promote trade and supply high-quality personnel for the zone. The committee has spent VND164 billion (US$7.7 million) for training in four years.

About VND585 billion ($27.4 million) has been provided from the State budget to support the training of workers since 2009.

Vung Ang Economic Zone was set up under a Government’s decision issued in 2006, covering nearly 23,000ha.

It is one of five key economic zones in the country. The economic zone is now home of 226 enterprises and employs nearly 12,500 workers.

According to initial statistics, the economic zone needs an additional 55,000 workers by 2015. — VNS
