The construction of a vocational school in northern Quang Ninh province began on June 23 under a cooperation agreement between the Governments of Vietnam and the Republic of Korea (RoK).

Costing around 326 billion VND that are sourced from the RoK Government’s Official Development Assistance and the local budget, the school will cover 22,400 square metres in Hoanh Bo district.

The school is expected to become operational in June, 2015. It targets to train about 700-1,600 students per year in five majors of mechanics, electricity, food processing and preservation, construction material production, and tourism.

It will also provide retraining courses for workers towards generating high-quality human resources serving the province’s “green” economy.

Apart from Quang Ninh, four similar schools have also been built in Hanoi, central Quang Ngai province, and southern Binh Duong and Ca Mau provinces.-VNA
