Vietnam to Speed Up Digital Transformation in Vocational Training

The Deputy Prime Minister, Vu Duc Dam, recently signed a decision approving a digital transformation programme in the vocational training sector in the 2021-2025 period with a vision to 2030. The targets include rolling out vocational training activities in the digital space, strengthening the application of information technology in vocational training, evaluating and managing activities, and expanding and improving vocational training access. The objective is to increase human resources quality and labour productivity.

As per a news report, by 2030, 100% of trainers and management officials are expected to receive supplementary training to improve their capacity to conduct vocational training activities in the digital environment. Meanwhile, 100% of lecturers and trainers should be able to create digital learning documents. The scheme also aims to develop a national digital platform for vocational training, along with shared digital resources for training and learning activities in 2025. In 2030, 100% of training facilities are expected to digitalise training processes, results, and degrees. The scheme aims to complete institutions and policies serving digital transformation in vocational training, develop training curricula to meet digital transformation requirements, and expand digital infrastructure, training equipment, and documents. It also underlines the need to improve the capacity for trainers and management officials, along with the mobilisation of resources for vocational training and international cooperation in the field.

The Minister of Information and Communications (MIC), Nguyen Manh Hung, expects the new year to be one of promoting digital transformation across all industries on a national scale. It will be the first year of implementing new strategies for digital infrastructure, data, the technology industry, and technology enterprises. A report from the ministry showed that the ranking indicators in many fields of the information and communication industry are highly regarded by international organisations. In 2021, the revenue of the information and communication industry hit all set targets and represented a 9% year-on-year increase.

The largest contribution to the industry’s revenue came from the ICT industry, with this year’s revenue estimated at more than US$136 billion, an increase of more than US$11.4 billion compared to 2020. The main contributor was FDI enterprises with more than US$117 billion. The year also marked a strong growth in the number of ICT businesses. Vietnam currently has 64,000 digital technology enterprises, adding 5,600 enterprises since 2020. The challenges of the pandemic have promoted the digital transformation process. In just a short time, the national digital transformation has spread widely at a rapid pace, creating a wave of digital transformation across ministries, branches, localities, agencies, and businesses across the country.

In the digital transformation process, Vietnamese digital technology enterprises have demonstrated their pioneering role in research, development, innovation, and mastering technology. The ministry set aims to shift information technology, electronics, and telecommunications industries from outsourcing and assembly to “Make in Vietnam”. This means indigenously designing and manufacturing products. The proportion of “Make in Vietnam” by 2025 is expected to reach over 45%. The country estimates it will have 100,000 digital technology enterprises by 2025, forming at least 10 digital technology enterprises that would compete in the global market, with a turnover of over US$1 billion each. The Deputy Prime Minister explained that in 2022, there should be stronger changes in database building. Three population, business, and land databases, along with e-payments, digital transformation, the digital economy, and the digital government will make substantial progress.
