Representatives of Germany’s labour companies made the offer at a reception in Hanoi on March 12 given by vice chairwoman of the Municipal People’s Committee.
Klaus Michel, General Director of the Avestor Labour Supply and Training Group, said the group has had long-term experience in vocational training and in the past has provided training for China, India and the Republic of Korea.
He proposed Hanoi cooperate with the group in establishing a Hanoi-Berlin vocational training institute which will provide counseling services to Hanoi youths and supply performance models on vocational training. The project is expected to cost around EUR20 million.
Strauch, Director of the German BTZ High Tech Centre, said Hanoi should create the best possible conditions, particularly investment procedures, for foreign businesses to invest in training in the long-term.
Many German companies are currently operating in Hanoi, so human resource training will not only meet the demands of the locality but also German businesses, said Strauch.
For her part, Bich said Hanoi wishes to strengthen cooperation with international businesses in vocational training to generate quality human resources for key sectors.
She briefed her guests on the capital city’s development and said it currently requires approximately 120,000-130,000 skilled workers for around 150,000 businesses per annum.
She suggested German partners consider on-site training, and invite German experts and teachers to give lectures in Hanoi.
