High-quality workforce crucial for Mekong Delta
A high-quality workforce is considered an important factor for the Mekong Delta to make breakthroughs in the future, according to the annual Mekong Delta Economic Report 2020.
The Mekong Delta now has the lowest immigration in the country and the highest emigration. It is also the only region to have recorded population growth of zero percent during the 2009-2019 period.
Secretary of the Dong Thap provincial Party Committee Le Quoc Phong said the province has launched five strategic breakthroughs for 2020-2025, including continuing to improve workforce quality to meet development demand amid the fourth Industrial Revolution and global integration, enhancing the quality of educational establishments, linking with universities, and paying attention to the transfer of technological advances and economic management knowledge to farmers.
