NDO – The 2017 Global Human Resources Forum opened in Hanoi on December 14, aiming to enhance the cooperation in education and training between Vietnam and the Republic of Korea (RoK).

The event was jointly held by the Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training, the RoK’s Ministry of Education and the RoK Economic Daily, as part of the activities to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Vietnam – RoK diplomatic ties (December 22, 1992 – 2017).

Speaking at the forum, Vietnamese Minister of Education and Training Phung Xuan Nha affirmed that human resources are the central factor and driving force for the socio-economic development of every country.

Facing new challenges created by the fourth industrial revolution, all countries should set out strategies to develop high-quality human resources, he added.

He shared that one of reasons for the RoK’s success was its excellent strategy in developing human resources, attracting talents, and improving the quality of human resources in both the public and private sectors to meet the requirements of the global competition.

Learning from the experience of developed countries, particularly the RoK, Vietnam has identified that the development of human resources is a breakthrough solution to develop the country’s economy, said Minister Nha.

He noted that Vietnam has paid great attention to strengthening and expanding its international cooperation in human resources development, focusing on building the establishment of internationally-qualified training institutions, as well as the training of leading experts and high-quality human resources in key sectors.

The Minister believed that at the forum, the participants from the two countries would discuss the appropriate measures to better meet the demand for human resources in the new period, contributing to boosting the strategic cooperation between Vietnam and the RoK.

During the two-day event, the experts will share experience and lessons during the RoK’s development from a poor country in late 1950s to a “dragon” in Asia.
