After 12 years in Vietnam (FDI ) I could not see any improvement on needed skills to drive the economy. There are major lacks in communication skill, teamwork is close to zero due to missing soft skills. The education level , from my perspective, is decreasing over the time but the demand on salary and position is outstanding high. The all over productivity in the last decade is in no means matching the increase of salaries. There is no willingness to change old habits in order to bust productivity and increase the skills . Upgrade certificates are only bought to demand higher paid, not to upgrade the work result. Moreover there is no strategy on what Vietnam likes to be in the future. Industrialized in 2020, IT hub, Asian financial hub, major transit hub.....the plans are unrealistic, unclear and cause therefore a complete lack in education strategy.
