Hanoi (VNA) – Authorities in the capital city planned to earmark 70 billion VND (3.1 million USD) for vocational training in 2016, with priority given to rural labourers and people with disabilities.

As part of the city’s plan to arrange vocational training for rural labourers from 2016 to 2020, the project is expected to benefit nearly 30,500 labourers in rural areas, more than 15,500 of whom will be trained in agriculture. Another 14,400 will receive training in other professions.

Beneficiaries will mostly be people with disabilities, those with low incomes, people from ethnic minority groups, families that rendered great services to the national revolution, and households whose agricultural land was taken for other use.

Municipal authorities have directed relevant sectors to work with vocational training centres in the city on the project.

Municipal People’s Committee Chairman Nguyen Duc Chung said the project is quite important. It will contribute to reducing the poverty rate in the locality, restricting waste of manpower, and ensuring security and social order.

He stressed the need to promote development and re-organisation of district-level vocational training units; plan the network of vocational schools; and encourage public and private universities, research institutes and enterprises to join the work.-VNA
