ADB (January, 2020) - This report examines how technical and vocational education and training (TVET) in Viet Nam can be improved to increase the country’s global competitiveness.

Following three decades of sustained economic growth, in 2009, Viet Nam graduated to become a lower middle-class country. However, despite ample foreign direct investment, labor productivity remains low. Improved TVET will help boost labor productivity in Viet Nam by developing skilled workers that meet market demands. Recommendations in this report focus on reforms in the governance structure, organization, and management of TVET; effective teaching of the right skills; greater enterprise-based training and financial support; and more inclusive access to higher quality training.
