Ho Chi Minh City is expected to have demand for an additional 23,000 full-time and 5,000 part-time employees, unveiled the Ho Chi Minh City’s Centre for Forecasting Manpower Needs and Labour Market Information (FALMI) on August 27.

Employment opportunities are primarily for unskilled labour and graduates/post-graduates, accounting for 28 percent and 27 percent of the total vacancies respectively. The demand for technicians follows closely at 25 percent.

Manpower demand is concentrated in the garment-textiles, footwear and leather sectors and the real estate, logistics, and sales industries.
