Within the framework of an official visit to Vietnam, a German delegation led by Ms. Jutta Kranz-Plote, Head of Division, Policy Issues of Cooperation with Asia, Southeast Asia, Indonesia, at the Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, paid a visit to the Bosch Rexroth Industry 4.0 Lab at the LILAMA 2 International Technology College last week.

The German delegation included members of the Embassy of Germany in Vietnam, the German Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City, and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), and representatives of KfW Development Bank.

The visit’s objective was investigating and exchanging information on the public-private partnership (PPP) project together with its results.

The PPP project was established to create cooperation with the business sector and stakeholders in the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) sector to jointly work on integrating the requirements of the growing technological changes resulting from Industry 4.0 and digitalization into human resources development in Vietnam for three years (2018-2020). A demonstration room with equipment following Industry 4.0 requirements was set up in LILAMA 2 by Bosch Rexroth.

At the same time, GIZ supported partners in coordinating activities, organizing professional workshops, providing further training for teachers, and evaluating results of the project, etc. The project is being implemented at LILAMA 2 and will then be expanded to other vocational training institutions with support from the Directorate of Vocational Education and Training.

“The partnership agreement with Bosch Rexroth is an important step in improving the quality and competitiveness of Vietnam’s human resources,” said Ms. Britta van Erckelens, Deputy Program Director of the Vietnamese - German Program. “During the past two years, conferences, workshops, and a study tour to Germany were organized. An Industry 4.0 training module will be implemented at LILAMA 2.”

“I believe these efforts will have an immense impact on upskilling the workforce in order to stay competitive in the future world of work. Reform of TVET in Vietnam is being implemented by GIZ.”

“Vietnam’s economy has developed rapidly in the past two decades,” said Mr. Guru Mallikarjuna, Managing Director of Bosch Vietnam. “This presents both a chance for Vietnam’s economy and a challenge given the significant shortage of skilled workers. Development of human capital is the key to success in sustainable development.”

“To support this vision, Bosch has established the demonstration room at LILAMA 2 in cooperation with GIZ and DVET, to develop Industry 4.0 training modules and adapting training programs, to continually help prepare the workforce with further education that matches the requirements of Industry 4.0.”
