This event will focus on businesses and localities’ policies towards the hi-tech human resources, workers’ proposals to the Government, and measures to help turn normal workers into those with hi-tech skills.

It will be a forum for the Government leader to learn about opinions and aspirations of the contingent of skilled workers, as well as their contributions to the development of businesses, localities and the country.

The dialogue is meant to reiterate the Government, employers and society’s attention to workers, along with efforts to improve the quality of human resources, especially skilled manpower, to meet development requirements.

President of the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour Bui Van Cuong said workers with hi-tech skills are a driving force of national development amidst the Fourth Industrial Revolution since they will have opportunities to earn more and contribute more to the country.

He added the dialogue between the Government leader and hi-tech workers will help fuel technology-based economic development, instead of growth relying on natural resources or cheap labour.
