Ho Chi Minh City has set a target of having over 87 per cent of workers complete training by 2025 and 89 per cent by 2030.
This is part of a plan issued recently by the municipal People’s Committee on developing the labor market in a flexible, modern, effective, sustainable, and integrated manner for rapid socio-economic recovery by 2030.
Under the plan, the city will also strive to maintain an urban unemployment rate of less than 4 per cent and 3 per cent by 2025 and 2030, respectively.
Workplace productivity growth is expected to be 7 per cent annually.
By 2025, the city will complete the construction of technical infrastructure, software, and systems to connect and share data as well as implement digital transformation and standardize databases on workers. The city’s labor database will be then connected to national information systems and databases.
