Ms. Ngo Pham Tran points out that currently, Taiwanese businesses are investing, promoting, cooperating, and deploying Taiwanese industrial zones in localities. These businesses are seeking high-quality human resources for mid-level, team leader positions, as well as general labor, with the goal of utilizing local labor. Taiwanese businesses provide reasonable remuneration, welfare regimes, and high promotion opportunities, which create opportunities for the development of human resources and long-term commitment to the company. This is the starting step in the cooperation between the parties, aiming to follow the needs and desires of businesses, suitable for the recruitment needs of Taiwanese businesses’ supply chains.

VACC will provide the capacity of its members for VTBA to consider and select suitable labor sources. Both sides will consider organizing a seminar to get a closer look at the production model and create conditions for training orders between the parties.

The parties will help equip the necessary training equipment for on-site training. They will also mobilize businesses and members of VTBA to provide scholarships to support students in their studies and training to meet the needs of Taiwanese businesses. Additionally, they will support the teaching staff and teaching methods to train the Chinese language for VACC members.

In his speech at the signing ceremony, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Diep Thanh Tung, Vice-Rector of Tra Vinh University, proposes implementing cultural and educational programs prioritized for Vietnamese students by the Taiwanese government and creating conditions for students and workers to have closer access to the Taiwanese market. He also suggests expanding investment cooperation of businesses in promoting commercial products and consuming OCOP products to contribute to the socio-economic development of Tra Vinh province in particular and the whole country in general.
