The Steering Committee for the Central Highlands, in conjunction with the Ministry of Education and Training, held a seminar in Dak Lak province on September 28 to discuss human resources training for the region.

Participants agreed that the area’s provinces hold huge economic potential which has yet to be tapped effectively due to a lack of high-quality human resources.

They agreed that priority should be given to improving the quality of teaching staff, increasing the proportion of students belonging to the ethnic minority groups and those in remote, border areas. It was also stated that universities and colleges should be reviewed to ensure they conform to the planning of the region’s educational institution system.

They also suggested the region boost training cooperation with others in the country and focus on professions that it lacks, such as technology and pharmaceuticals, in order to meet the demands of the region’s socio-economic development.-VNA
