The Role of the Private Sector in Vocational and Educational Training
This Policy Paper analyses the vocational education and training (VET) system in four selected countries – namely India, the Republic of Korea, South Africa, and Vietnam. The need for adequately skilled persons is rising in all four countries. And all four countries have identified the VET system – in cooperation with the private sector – as a key actor to provide such skills. In consequence, all four countries have developed individual and apposite measures to strengthen their VET systems. Even though the four countries are very different in terms of their starting points and their demographic, economic and institutional framework conditions, they all face the same challenge: designing a VET system that makes the country future-proof. On the one hand, such a VET system skills young persons for the labour market and improves their employment prospects. On the other hand, teaching the right skills is a key necessity for a sustainable growth strategy for the economy as a whole and for reacting to current challenges like the ongoing digitalisation of the economy. Since in Germany the German dual training system has a long tradition, it is also introduced as a reference model.

Efficiency and competitiveness of the private sector in Vietnam

The private sector has increasingly played an important role in the economic development of Vietnam. In the period from 2005 to 2009, the GDP average annual growth rate of the formal private sector was 13.87%, much higher than the rate of 7.83% for the whole economy. However, the important contribution of private sector to the economy was though recognized, there are still debates and even critics over the relatively low level of productivity and competitiveness of the private sector.

A Macro-Model Approach to Monetary Policy Analysis and Forecasting for Vietnam

Monetary policy in Vietnam is anchored around exchange rate stability as the intermediate target to achieve price stability. Specifically, the authorities maintain the dong closely linked to the U.S. dollar. In recent years, Vietnam’s need for  accommodative monetary conditions has coincided with exceptionally easy monetary policy in the U.S. Going forward the balancing act of maintaining a close link to the U.S. dollar and implementing monetary policy appropriate for Vietnam is going to be more difficult.
