Therefore, Samsung Vietnam is striving to train Việt Nam’s young technology talents, so they can contribute to the company’s success and step a big step forward and contribute to Việt Nam. We will proactively support the Việt Nam team so that its contestants of this year’s World Skills Competition reap the best results.”
With Samsung’s support, Việt Nam has reaped commendable achievements in the international vocational skills competition arena.
In 2015, at the World Skills Competition organised in Brazil, contestant Nguyễn Duy Thanh of IT Software Solutions received the bronze medal. It was also the first time that the Việt Nam team achieved a medal, after participating five times.
At the 44th World Skills Competition organised in 2017 in Abu Dhabi (UAE), contestant Trần Nguyễn Bá Phước was the sole contestant of the Việt Nam delegation to receive a bronze medal for IT Software Solutions Vocation.
Samsung Vietnam has supported Vietnamese contestants and experts in participating in the World Skills Competition since the 43rd World Skills Competition in 2015 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Samsung Vietnam directly supported representative contestants to participate in training in South Korea.
Aside from supporting contestants in the World Skills Competition, Samsung Vietnam also executes many projects intending to improve the quality of Vietnamese human resources, such as donating Samsung Lab study rooms and supporting education for several universities to facilitate conditions for their students to access modern IT knowledge, as well as granting Samsung talent scholarships with opportunities to intern at the Samsung Vietnam Mobile phone Research and Development Centre. — VNS
