Industry Players Highlight the Need for Blockchain Experts in Vietnam
Vietnam is not the only country looking for blockchain developers with a deficit that appears to be a common problem for countries like the United States, China and India. When it comes to new technology, Vietnam is the first in the same situation as the technology hub and understaffed, business executives told local media.
The shortage of expertise is inevitable in Vietnam and internationally, said Pham Van Huy, CEO of Moonlab, a company working on blockchain and metaverse projects. Quoted from the English-language daily Vietnam News, he explained:
It is very difficult to recruit human resources specialized in this field because blockchain is still quite new and there are no training programs in universities, colleges or even information technology centers in the country.
Huy also said that Vietnam wants to be a hub for blockchain talentin terms of quantity and quality, it is necessary to focus on training at all levels and start a dialogue about technology between government officials, business owners and managers, as well as employees and students.
Huy also emphasized that the country should try to bring back Vietnamese experts trained or working abroad with attractive job opportunities and remuneration. The executive also emphasized the importance of international cooperation programs.
Moonlab’s CEO believes that a successful blockchain business should organize courses for undergraduate IT students and apprentices to improve their skills and knowledge of blockchain while offering attractive salaries to those who join the company.
“Vietnam should soon establish training centers and courses in universities and colleges for this technology industry,” said Phan Duc Trung, vice chairman of the Vietnam Blockchain Association. He added that the organization is currently preparing qualified experts who can contribute to blockchain research, testing and deployment.
“It is the first time that Vietnam is in the same starting position as the whole world with new technology,” commented Huy Nguyen, co-founder of Kardiachain. He believes that if the country can tackle the problem at its root, it will be able to meet the market needs in the next five to 10 years and help in its widespread implementation.
