Vietnam, Japan cooperate in human resources training

Tokyo, April 16 (VNA) – Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Construction Bui Pham Khanh and Japanese Deputy Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Kazuhiko Aoki signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on developing human resources in the construction sector on in Tokyo on April 16.

According to the MoU, the two sides will cooperate to improve the quality of technique training programmes for Vietnamese construction workers.

Vietnam will be one of the three counties to receive 10.8 million JPY (90,000 USD) annually to develop human resources in the field, in effect until 2021.
