Labor in the informal sector also accounts for a high share and labor mobility is still low. Although the results of poverty reduction in 2022 are close to the target, they are at the lowest level in recent years.

According to statistics, the whole country has 63 places of cultural vocational training, 625 vocational schools organize both vocational training and cultural studies, and more than 400,000 students attend such programmes. Both vocational training and cultural learning are established in accordance with the Education Act and have been applied by the Ministry of Education and Training for many years.

In addition, increasing the percentage of employees with certificates and diplomas, which will bring about a strong change in the quality of vocational training, especially vocational skills.
