PM issues youth development strategy for 2021-2030

Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh has recently issued the Vietnamese Youth Development Strategy for the 2021-2030 period, aiming to build a contingent of Vietnamese youths who have a strong sense of patriotism, dynamism, creativity, and science-technology mastery, among others.

It outlines six key tasks, including raising awareness of laws, legal assistance, fair access to study opportunities, quality human resources, spiritual lives, role in socio-economic development  and national defence.

By 2030, 80 percent of youths are expected to receive career and job orientations, while 60 percent will undergo vocational training in combination with job creation. Each year, at least 700,000 young people will be able to get jobs.

The rate of unemployed youths in urban and rural areas will be reduced to below 7 percent and 6 percent, respectively.

Annually, young people, especially difficult circumstances will receive support to join cultural, art, sport and community activities in their schools, workplaces or residential areas.

At least half of young people will be able to master digital tools for communications and business on digital platforms by 2030./.
