The Vietnam – Korea Training Cooperation Centre (VKTCC), based in Saigon Hi-Tech Park (SHTP), officially debuted on November 30.
The centre is a joint effort with the Korea Institute of Industrial Technology (KITECH) of the Republic of Korea, with the involvement of the Ho Chi Minh City Centre of Supporting Industries Development (CSID), and Vietnamese and Korean enterprises.
It is expected to become a prestigious training model in Vietnam and provide quality workforce up to RoK standards for firms in and outside the SHTP, contributing to the municipal breakthrough programme on human resource and cultural development for the 2020-2025 period and the national programme on hi-tech development till 2030.
Head of the SHTP management board Nguyen Anh Thi said the centre will train and provide quality workforce in the fields of precision engineering, automation, digital transformation and smart production, thus helping Vietnamese firms participate deeper in the global value chain amid the fourth industrial revolution.
It will also help with the transfer of RoK's advanced technologies to improve Vietnamese enterprises' production capacity, and assist domestic enterprises in raising labour productivity and product quality via training courses and programmes evaluating workers’ vocational skills based on RoK standards.
