At least 7,000 people in rural areas of the Central Highland province of Lam Dong will receive job training each year, with 60 percent of them expected to work in agriculture and the remaining in industry and non-agriculture fields and for export.

Each trainee will be offered a grant of 2-3 million VND (95 – 140 USD) to take the courses, as part of the ongoing project to provide vocational training for rural workers.

The 2014-2020 project prioritises people living under the poverty line and ethnic minorities as well as the disabled and social welfare beneficiary families.

Lam Dong is home to 10 vocational training centers and more than 50 vocational training establishments.

Since 2010, the province has provided vocational training for about 30,000 labourers, most of whom living in rural areas.-VNA
