From my experience conducting a research by interviewing enterpreneurs in Thailand and Vietnam. I found that employers in both countries complain about competencies of the workforce. However, from our view is that to be an efficient workforce one needs 3 skills: cognitive skills, technical skills and behavioral skills. Most of TVET students in these 2 countries are poor in cognitive skills and behavioral skills, these 2 skills have strong impact to technical skills- to do the job well. My conclusion is that "not everyone can be a good, effective workforce, they can be only temporary, poor self-employed and with low-end products". Vietnam might be able to handle the mass production(intensive labor) within this decade but not the next decade onwards. Vietnam will need to shift to high-end products, like Thailand is planning to get that goal, in the next decades. But Vietnam must start to produce high quality workforces by now. Phasina
