4th industrial revolution challenge for Vietnam's workers

Nov '17
Vietnamese industry experts feel government-run enterprises and local businesses should pay necessary attention to training workers for the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0), which is likely to replace people on production lines with machines to improve productivity and reduce labour and administrative costs, so that they are not rendered redundant.

The textile and garment industry in Vietnam is using a lot of labour with basic skills, and therefore, it would be immensely affected by Industry 4.0, Le Tien Truong, general director of Vietnam Textile and Garment Group, said on the sidelines of a recent conference on co-operation between Vietnam and Japan for Asia-Pacific economic integration.

With Industry 4.0, workers in all countries face a daunting challenge, economist Le Dang Doanh said. Many Vietnamese companies had already started investing in automation, dismissing hundreds of workers and about 86 per cent of the country’s apparel and footwear workers are expected to lose their jobs in the next 15 years, an online newspaper in Vietnam quoted Doanh as saying.

Vietnam’s footwear industry also faces a similar fate, according to Nguyen Duc Thuan, chairman of Vietnam Leather and Footwear Association.

Universities and institutions will also have to revise their curricula to impart updated skills and knowledge, experts feel. (DS)
