    The so-called fourth industrial revolution, also known as Industry 4.0, will provide more development opportunities for businesses but will also require businesses to prepare qualified human resources to meet the industry’s standards, according to experts.

    To prepare for the new wave, many businesses have invested in buying modern machines and equipment and in training human resources. But in the Saigon Hi-tech Park, for example, high-tech firms still lack qualified staff to meet their demand. Deputy Director of the park Lê Thành Nhân said businesses in the park need workers capable of operating modern equipment and technology.

    CEO of the Meetech Technology Joint Stock Company Phạm Bá Khiển said the number of high-quality workers who could map out ideas or operate modern equipment was limited. They mostly come from universities, but the rate of applied research for start-ups was low, he said.

    Nguyễn Văn Thụ, chairman of the Việt Nam Association of Mechanical Industry, said at a recent conference in Hà Nội that investing in human resources should be considered the most important task for local manufacturers, in addition to fostering technical innovation and enhancing co-operation among businesses to maximise efficiency and avoid overlapping investments.

    To deal with the problem, the Training Centre of the Saigon Hi-tech Park has supported businesses in training workers to meet their demands for high-quality human resources.

    Experts also warn that besides focusing on training high-quality human resources, it is also necessary to upgrade or reform training programmes and methods so that employees can meet the demands of Industry 4.0.

    Trần Quang Binh from the HCM City Technical and Economic College said demands for a high-tech workforce were growing, while well-trained human resources supply capacity was limited.
