Nguyen Anh Dung, chairman of the Vietnam Economic and Cultural Office in Taipei said that the high-quality human resource training program under the New Southbound Policy had opened up many opportunities for Vietnamese students as they could work while studying.
However, educational institutions in Vietnam need to tell students that this is the training program for high-quality human resources, not for laborers exported to Taiwan, Dung said.
He also asked Taiwanese universities to focus on the quality of training to meet the needs of high-quality human resources at Taiwanese firms interested in investing in Vietnam.
Member of the Taiwanese Legislative Yuan Chung Chia-pin emphasized two key issues in the educational cooperation on high-quality human resource training between Vietnam and Taiwan. Firstly, the Taiwanese Ministry of Education has shifted to the distancing training for foreign students who cannot enter Taiwan due to the complex Covid-19 development.

Nguyen Thi Quynh Nga, director of Northern Taiwan's Investment Promotion Agency under the Ministry of Planning and Investment, said amid the complicated Covid-19 development, Vietnam had taken many measures to protect the health and lives of the people while maintaining the production and business activities. In the first six months of 2021, Vietnam lured US$ 9.55 billion in newly registered investment capital, up 3.2% over the same period last year and US$ 4.12 billion in expanded registered investment capital, up 10.6% over the same period, proving that foreign visitors have been keen on investing in the country, she said.
Nga envisions human resources as a huge benefit for that nation. “Vietnam cannot continue to compete based on the advantage of cheap labor, but it needs to prioritize investing in environmentally-friendly high-tech fields. High-quality human resources are considered as a determining factor for socio-economic development.”
