Politburo member and Chairman of the Party Central Committee’s Economic Commission Tran Tuan Anh made the remarks at an international conference on human resources in the material industry held in Ho Chi Minh on April 10.
The conference, entitled “Developing human resources in the material industry to meet the requirements of the country industrialisation and modernisation by 2030, with a vision to 2045”, was held by the Party Central Committee’s Economic Commission, the Ministry of Science and Technology and Vietnam National University Ho Chi Minh City.
Politburo member Tran Tuan Anh said that Vietnam has many potentials and advantages for the development of the material industry, but the development of Vietnam’s material industry is not commensurate with its potential. Domestic raw materials have yet to meet the needs of many important sectors, leading to a dependence on imported raw materials and reduction in the resilience and competitiveness of the economy.
He emphasised that Vietnam needs new thinking and approaches to human resources in the material industry in the context of increasing international competition and the implementation of new-generation free trade agreements.
Reports, discussions and speeches by both domestic and international experts have also outlined the situation of training in Vietnam and the necessity to make further investment, review policies and change human resources training in the field.
