Vietnamese companies urge Blockchain training for IT students and specialists – Blockchain Bitcoin News

Members of Vietnam’s growing blockchain industry called on the government and educational institutions to pay more attention to the talent gap. With the shortage of skilled personnel being a global challenge, they say the country needs to address the lack of training.

Industry players point to growing need for blockchain experts in Vietnam

Vietnam is not the only country looking for blockchain developers, with the shortage also seen as a common problem in countries like the United States, China, and India. When it comes to new technologies, Vietnam is for the first time in the same situation as these tech hubs and it is equally understaffed, business executives told local media.

Scarcity of expertise is inevitable in Vietnam and internationally, said Pham Van Huy, CEO of Moonlab, a company working on blockchain and metaverse projects. Quoted by the English-language daily Vietnam News, he specifies:

It is extremely difficult to recruit specialized human resources in this field because the blockchain is still quite new and there are no training programs in universities, colleges or even information technology centers in the country.

Huy also pointed out that if Vietnam wants to become a hub for blockchain talent, in terms of quantity and quality, it is necessary to focus on training at all levels and start a dialogue on the technology between government officials, business owners and managers, as well as employees and students.

Huy also insisted that the country should try to bring back Vietnamese experts trained or working abroad with job opportunities and attractive remuneration. The executive also stressed the importance of international cooperation programs.

Moonlab CEO believes that successful blockchain companies should organize courses for undergraduate computer science students and internships to improve their blockchain skills and knowledge while offering attractive salaries to those who join their companies.

“Vietnam should soon establish training centers and courses in universities and colleges for this tech industry,” said Phan Duc Trung, vice president of the Vietnam Blockchain Association. He added that the organization is currently working to prepare qualified experts who can help with blockchain research, testing and deployment.

“This is the first time that Vietnam is in the same starting position as the whole world with a new technology,” commented Huy Nguyen, co-founder of Kardiachain. He is convinced that if the country can tackle the problem at the root, it can meet the market needs in the next five to 10 years and contribute to widespread implementation.
