Generally, the project mainly centers on calculating the business community’s labor demand first.
Deputy PM Nhân asked localities to report on preliminary estimates of short-term job-training demand, at least in the period of 2010-2011.
By the end of April this year, regional-level meetings will be organized to exchange results and share experience.
Each locality needs to identify its own occupational demand, trainees’ demand, and training capacity (including vocational training centers and their current status) to map out necessary improvement plans, said Mr. Nhân.
He asked the relevant ministries to actively engage in the implementation of the Project by providing help to localities in fulfilling the set missions.

Showing their agreement to the solutions, participants to the video-conference were all determined to join efforts with relevant agencies in realizing the Project
