The HR director of a leading technology firm in Vietnam says that his company needs to hire 200 high-quality technicians in 2022, but has only been able to hire 50 within a six month period.

Economic experts say that to have human resources who can adapt to the digital economy, Vietnam must focus on training.
The reform of vocational training in association with digital transformation and information technology application has been defined as an important solution to provide high quality human resources, according to insiders.
