Under the ongoing Project "Promoting the participation of logistics enterprises in vocational education in Viet Nam," the Directorate of Vocational Education and Training (TVET), in collaboration with the Australian Embassy in Viet Nam through the Aus4skills Program, convened a meeting of the Steering Committee and Technical Team on July 6th, 2023, to synchronize project efforts. Present at the meeting from DVET was Deputy Director General Pham Vu Quoc Binh, alongside departmental leaders and officials representing various units including Formal Training Department, VETA, Skills Department, Regular Training Department, Teachers Department, and DVET Office. Representatives from the Viet Nam Confederation of Trade and Industry included Ms. Tran Thi Lan Anh, the General Secretary, and Ms. Bui Thi Ninh, Head of the Ho Chi Minh City Employers' Office. From the Australian Embassy, attendees included Ms. Cherie Russell, Development Counsellor, and Ms. Julie Hart, First Secretary, along with other related officials. Representing the Aus4skills Program were Ms. Kaye Eldridge, Program Director, and Program Officers.

During the meeting, the Steering Committee reviewed the project's progress in the first half of 2023, outlined plans for the remaining six months, evaluated the Logistics Skills Council (LIRC) activities, and shared priorities for future collaboration between DVET, the Australian Embassy, and VCCI.

Deputy Director General Pham Vu Quoc Binh commended the project's achievements in the initial half of the year, particularly highlighting LIRC's endeavors such as facilitating connections among LIRC members, developing vocational skill forecasts in logistics, establishing an enterprise-led vocational training model, expanding council models, and formulating new vocational standards and training programs. He underscored the crucial role of VCCI in sustaining LIRC's activities and urged strong communication efforts to engage more enterprises in vocational education activities.
