Therefore, when attracting the attention of investors, the Government must also ensure that the quality and quantity of skilled labor are not too disparate compared to other markets in the region. So far, Vietnam has outlined in its socio-economic development strategy from 2021 to 2030 to reform education, improve the quality and accessibility of training, but this is not possible. do it overnight.
