Vietnam, Australia train future leaders

HCM City, April 1 (VNA) - Fifteen leading Australian universities and executive training providers will participate in the Vietnam-Australia Executive Education and Training Showcase to be held in Vietnam for the first time.

The event will be held in Hanoi and HCM City on April 4 and 5, respectively.

The institutions will showcase their expertise and excellence in executive education and training for middle managers and future leaders.

They will also discuss potential institutional linkages, commercial partnerships, and collaboration with the aim of enhancing the capacity of future leaders.

A presentation by Austrade’s Chief Economist on “Building human capital to meet the challenges of a world economy in transition” will be included.

In addition, there will be two panel discussions: “Training for a more competitive Vietnam, increasing productivity and innovation” and “Developing managers and future leaders in the digital age”.

The showcase will be followed by one-on-one meetings between the Australian and Vietnamese representatives from ministries, provincial departments, universities, training organisations and business organisations.

The showcase is designed to support Vietnam in addressing some of the challenges in aligning with the recent World Bank’s Vietnam 2035 report “Toward Prosperity, Creativity, Equity and Democracy” and VCCI’s report “Vietnam in Transition: Skills and Productivity in the Labour Market”.

The event will be opened by Keith Pitt, Australia’s assistant minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, during his visit to Vietnam.

“Australian universities and training providers have a strong reputation around the world and this showcase will bring them face to face with the Vietnamese Government, businesses and multinational corporations to discuss new opportunities,” he said.

“The Australian training providers can offer tailored training courses to these organisations in order to build their executive workforce to address specific gaps in management, leadership and planning.”

The showcase is organised by the Australian Government, in collaboration with the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI), the Vietnam Human Resources Club, and CPA Australia and Human Resources Association.
