ICHAM (Italian Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam) invited Ms. Mai Nguyen – Managing Director at Navigos Search to join the new series talk show "Talk With Experts" to share more about the labor market outlook & forecast in Vietnam. We have observed a significant increase of labor demand in compared to the last 10 years, especially in Manufacturing, ICT, FMCG and Financial Services.
Specifically, in some key industries such as Manufacturing, Information Technology and Trading, there is a wave of new investors considering Vietnam as a new destination to build up new factories or technology hubs recording a huge labor demand in Vietnam. Additionally, Ms. Mai pointed out some tips & solutions for Italian SMEs when approaching to Vietnam market to bridge the big gap of information, experience and budget.
Ms. Mai mentioned a big “push” in the import-export activities between Vietnam and European countries thanks to the European Union Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA). Implementing EVFTA is also a potential opportunity for Vietnamese talents to learn & grow to meet the new requirements in 3 – 5 years. Moreover, it can attract more and more Vietnamese talents working in Europe & U.S or expatriate talents and create a big challenge for local talents to sharpen themselves.
