RESTRUCTURING THE POPULATION AND HUMAN RESOURCES TO MEET THE TARGET OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IN VIETNAM

DANG NGUYEN ANH

Tóm tắt


    For all nations, human resource development is crucial for success, particularly in the present era of globalization and international integration. Vietnam is experiencing a prominent increase in the proportion of people of working ages, characterized by the lowest ratio of working ages to dependent population. This advantage, known as the "demographic dividend" (or "demographic bonus"), is a great potential for the country's socio-economic development. However, "demographic dividend" may become a social burden if education, training and employment for young manpower are not adequately provided.

The paper pointed out that Vietnam's human capital is of a great potential but the current death of professional skills and low quality of labour has hindered the country's opportunities which have brought about by the favourable age structure and abundant supply of labour. After examining and analyzing different challenges regarding the low quality of the human resources, the paper made policy recommendations and suggested necessary measures for restructuring the human resources of Vietnam in line of the Government's efforts in restructuring the economy to overcome obstacles and meet the target of sustainable development.
