The Vietnam Association for Logistics Manpower Development (VALOMA) last week held its first congress. Mai Xuan Thieu, head of the campaign division for the establishment of the association, said that manpower plays an important role in the sustainable development of the local logistics industry. However, the industry is still facing an insufficient supply of skilled and qualified manpower.
Mai Xuan Thieu, who has been elected as chairman of VALOMA in the 2021-2024 term, added that the number of teachers and training infrastructure for the logistics industry remains weak. Meanwhile, training curricula and contents are in high demand but remains unstandardised, making it unable to meet current demands and international trade.

Worse still, cooperation between schools and businesses remains loose in training and labour recruitment.
The establishment of the association is expected to help solve these shortcomings to facilitate industrial development in the future.
Nguyen Thu Thuy, director general of the Higher Education Department of the Ministry of Education and Training (MoET), said that the association will gather modern knowledge, rich experience, and advanced technology for manpower training for the logistics industry to meet its development demands and global integration.
At the event, the VALOMA signed cooperation agreements with other associations, including the Vietnam Logistics Business Association, the Vietnam E-Commerce Association, and others to increase cooperation, collaboration, and support among them for the sustainable development of the association.
