VGP – President Nguyen Xuan Phuc on Sunday called for improving Vietnamese labor skills to build a prosperous country on the occasion of the Viet Nam Labor Skills Day (October 4).

As high-quality and skilled workforce is a valuable resource and a decisive factor for the development of each country, President Nguyen called on laborers across the country to ceaselessly learn and master skills, and be creative in improving productivity and efficiency.

He asked the National Assembly, the Government, ministries, agencies and localities to prioritize resources and take drastic actions to advance the development of skilled workforce.

Nguyen also expected the business community and employers to actively engage in vocational training, particularly for those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Government targeted annual growth of labor productivity by at least 7.5 percent over the next decade, according to a master plan on enhancing productivity based on science, technology and innovation for the 2021 – 2030 period recently issued by the Prime Minister.

The purpose of the master plan is to make productivity a key driver of all sectors through the application of new scientific and technological achievements, advanced management systems and tools for productivity improvements and human resources training and retraining in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

About 30-35 cities and provinces alongside 5-7 groups and corporation are expected to join the development and implementation of the master plan.

Additionally, at least 500 small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) will devise and carry out key projects on productivity improvement, while at least 20 universities and vocational training centers will have productivity improvement clubs for students./.
