Five hundred staff members from six departments under the Hanoi People’s Committee will be sent abroad for training courses from now until 2025 as part of an overseas upskilling project recently launched by city authorities.

The Hanoi People’s Committee has announced an overseas training project focused on refreshing and enhancing professional knowledge and skills for cadres, civil servants, and public employees from the city’s six departments during the 2022-25 period with a total budget of around VND91 billion (US$3.9 million).

These departments are required to make detailed plans for their qualified employees to take such refresher courses in foreign countries, including the U.S., Australia, Germany, France, Japan, New Zealand, and Singapore, among others, the municipal administration said. 

These training courses are expected help upskill city government employees, thereby enhancing their work effectiveness and contributing to the capital’s management efficiency, the Hanoi administration said. 

Accordingly, 160 staff members from the Department of Home Affairs will take a refresher course in green, smart, and modern urban development, as well as in human resource management and development.

The budget for this is VND29 billion ($1.24 million).   

As for the Department of Finance, training courses costing over VND18 billion ($771,300) will be offered to 100 employees in public financial and investment management, public policy and strategy, and the formulation and implementation of public policies.

The Department of Information and Communications will spend VND3.6 billion ($154,200) for 200 staff members to be trained in information technology application in e-government, digital administration, smart metropolis, and digital transformation.

With the same expenditure, 20 other employees from the Department of Science and Technology will learn how to develop, manage, and implement policies in the scientific and technological sector.

Meanwhile, the Department of Health and the Department of Education and Training will each have 100 staff members take courses in the development, management, and implementation of digital transformation in the education sector and in educational institutions.

The budget for this aspect of the program is around VND18.4 billion ($787,700) for each agency.  

The home affairs department is assigned to be the project’s standing agency that will help municipal authorities create a steering board for the implementation.

In addition to these refresher courses, the Hanoi administration in May announced a budget of VND61.6 billion ($2.63 million) for doctoral and masters training, both at home and abroad, for the city’s cadres, civil servants, and public employees by 2025 in order to improve the capital’s human resource quality.
