Under the deal, CE has become a partner of the training programme that follows EHL's world-renowned quality-assurance standards in hotel management.

In her remarks, Lan welcomed CE’s vision that contributes to a peaceful future, stable society and economic growth of Vietnam via capacity and skill development for the country’s high quality young human resources.

The Vocational Education & Training Licensing (VET) programme by EHL is a blended skills training model based on a Swiss competency framework.

The curriculum emphasises practical learning, designed to enable graduates to be work-ready upon completion.

The programme will comprise four courses and be held in Phu Quoc island city in the Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang.

CE is a member of CityLand Investment Company Limited (CityLand) which develops and operates a multi-industry business.

Switzerland is the sixth largest European investor of Vietnam, with a total investment worth about 2 billion USD. Meanwhile, Vietnam is the fourth leading trade partner of Switzerland in ASEAN.
