Five key areas were up for discussion when Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc met with 1,000 skilled workers from seven cities and provinces on May 5 in Ho Chi Minh City.

The “High-skilled workers - A driving force for the country’s development” dialogue was also attended by Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam, leaders from ministers, industries and localities, and workers in key economic areas in the country.

It included five key areas: business policies of enterprises for high-skilled workers, local policies in developing high-skilled human resources, proposals from high-skilled laborers for the government in introducing motivational policies, what should be done to make workers become high-skilled, and the expectations of high-skilled workers to contribute more to the development of the country, localities, and businesses.

Prime Minister Phuc assigned the Office of the Government to combine, classify and send documents to each ministry, industry and locality to work on matters raised at the dialogue.

He also affirmed that high-tech workers are assets and capital of Vietnam and can create opportunities for competitive development as the country integrates. They currently account for less than 19 per cent of the workforce.

In order to create conditions for the development of workers, the Prime Minister said the government will continue to improve mechanisms and policies for developing human resources, in particular focusing on training and developing skilled workers.

The government continues to direct ministries, branches, localities and business owners in paying attention to four essential issues for workers: salaries and benefits, social housing, work and study environments, and places for workers’ children to study and play.
