DAK LAK (VNS) – A seminar was held in Buon Ma Thuot City in the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak yesterday to review training provided for local ethnic minority civil servants in the region between 2016 and 2020.
Jointly organised by the Central Highlands Steering Committee, the provincial People's Committee and the Training Institute for Ethnic Minority Officials, the seminar looked to identify personnel training demands in the region in order to ensure regional security and economic development.
Presentations at the event focused on several key issues, including the status of training provision for local public servants, personnel demands in Dak Lak Province and supplementary training for ethnic minority officials in the locality.
The Central Highlands has encompasses Kon Tum, Gia Lai, Dak Lak, Dak Nong and Lam Dong with about 15,560 civil servants at communal level, over 25 per cent of whom are from ethnic minority communities and 74.5 per cent have Intermediate Professional Education Diplomas or above.
However, little attention has been paid to providing state management training for ethnic minority public servants, while training programmes were not flexible enough for them in terms of curricular and teaching approaches. — VNS
