The German delegation included members of the German Embassy in Hanoi, German Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and representatives of KfW Development bank.

The visit’s objective was to investigate and exchange information about the public-private partnership (PPP) project and evaluate the results.The PPP project was established to create a co-operation with the business sector and stakeholders in the technical and vocational education and training (TVET) sector to jointly work on integrating the requirements of the growing technological changes resulting from Industry 4.0 and digitalisation into human resources development in Vietnam in the past three years (2018-2020).

As part of this PPP project, a demonstration room with equipment following Industry 4.0 requirements was set up in LILAMA 2 by Bosch Rexroth. At the same time, GIZ supported the partners in co-ordinating activities, organising professional workshops, providing further training for teachers, and evaluating the results of the project.

The project is implemented at LILAMA 2. Afterwards it is going to be expanded to other vocational training institutions under the support of the Directorate of Vocational Education and Training. “The Partnership Agreement with Bosch Rexroth is an important step to improve the quality and competitiveness of Vietnamese human resources. During the past two years, conferences, workshops and a study tour to Germany were organised. An Industry 4.0 training module will be implemented at LILAMA 2. I do believe these efforts will have an immense impact on upskilling the labour force in order to stay competitive in the future world of work,” said Britta van Erckelens, deputy programme director of the Vietnamese-German Programme “Reform of TVET in Vietnam” implemented by GIZ.

“The Vietnamese economy has been developing rapidly in the past two decades. This presents both chances and challenges by imposing a significant shortage of skilled labour. The development of human capital is the most vital factor in sustainable development. To support this vision, Bosch has established the Demonstration Room at LILAMA 2 in co-operation with GIZ and DVET, to develop Industry 4.0 training modules and adapting training programmes, to continually help to prepare the labour force with further education which matches the requirements of Industry 4.0," asserted by Guru Mallikarjuna, managing director of Bosch Vietnam.
