|IT to make big labour pool splash|
|20:55' 02/12/2007 (GMT+7)|
VietNamNet Bridge - Vietnam will have to beef up education and training if it hopes to become one of the world’s top five guest worker providers and a major outsourcer in the next 10 years.
IT research and development requires a significant and educated workforce. Without it, industry growth would remain stagnant and investing companies will look for opportunities elsewhere, said Ajay Gupta, director of HP Lab in India.
“India has invested hugely in education since the 1980s. The government saw the need for high-end engineering education, which has offered students the skills to meet industry demand,” said Gupta.
“Vietnam is opening up, and because the country improved its telecom infrastructure the IT community feels more comfortable in coming over,” said Gupta.
India’s IT industry earned $29.5 billion in 2006 and has set targets of $60 billion in receipts by 2010. The number of employees surged to 1.3 million by 2005 from 284,000 in 1999.
Vietnam is home to 720 IT companies that employ 25,000 programmers. Annual revenue growth rates average out to between 30-40 per cent.
Nguyen Trong Duong, deputy director of Information Technology Industry Department under the Ministry of Information and Communications, said the key for Vietnam was to promote its IT industry to boost human resources.
Pham Tan Cong, general secretary of Vietnam Software Association, said Vietnam could maintain the annual human resource growth rate of 50 per cent like India with 25,000 engineers in 2006, 200,000 in 2010 and around 1.5 million by 2015.
Cong proposed the Vietnamese Government boost private and foreign investment in education with international standards. Students will have one year to learn either English or Japanese to meet demand of Japan, US and Europe companies.
According to the Global Outsourcing Report 2005 made by well-known specialists in the sector Mark Minevich from Going Global Ventures Inc and Frank-Jürgen Richter from Horaris, Vietnam was ranked among top 30 leading outsourcing software nations by 2015.
According to the IT human resource development of Vietnam to 2020, the government will give a certain percentage out of the total one per cent of the state budget funding for science and technology to deploy R&D in IT, electronics and telecoms as well as establish a fund for supporting IT training.
The government is encouraging the expansion of certificate granting bases and deploying one year additional IT training for non-IT students at universities as well as the second IT engineering certificate along with non-IT bachelor. IT training will be available in all secondary and primary schools by 2015.
The country’s largest software company FPT has plans to raise its total staff to 10,000 later this year. Among its current staff, 30 per cent are graduates from its Aptech chain. Few of its staff study abroad.
The measures for increasing IT staff include an international certificate test in Vietnam as well as the tuition of both training centres such as Aptech and vocational colleges.
The industry would need either secondary graduates with IT certificates to do for their projects instead of only university graduates.
Cuong estimated that Vietnam had less than around 500 engineers with international certificates who often work for international companies in Vietnam.
