The event, co-held by Austrade and the Vietnamese Ministry of Information and Communications, created a forum for universities, research organisations and companies of Vietnam and Australia to exchange training experience and seek collaboration opportunities.

She expressed her belief that with the presence of leading IT experts from both countries, the seminar would see numerous IT development initiatives and solutions proposed and many partnerships formed between Vietnamese and Australian organisations.

Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Phan Tam said the Vietnamese Party and State define ICT as an important part of infrastructure and an effective tool to create a new development mode and a momentum for boosting the knowledge-based economy and improving the national competitiveness in the international economic integration.

At present, Vietnam has 250 universities and colleges, plus 164 vocational training schools providing ICT training, with about 86,000 students. 

However, the ICT human resources training quality needs to be improved quickly amid the fourth Industrial Revolution. Vietnam’s relevant agencies are actively seeking measures to raise training quality in the field in order to create a new generation of workers with good knowledge and skills that can adapt to changes in the digital economic era, he said.

He expressed his wish that participating experts would clarify great challenges Vietnam is facing in ICT human resources development amidst the impacts of Industry 4.0.

At the seminar, participants discussed the impacts of Industry 4.0 on ICT human resources development in Vietnam, ICT training demands, priorities and challenges of Vietnam, and innovative solutions to human resources quality improvement in the digital era in Vietnam.
