The Republic of Korean’s Taekwang Group, in association with the Kien Giang provincial People’s Committee, on January 9th began the construction of the Phu Quoc Vocational Training School in Ham Ninh commune, Phu Quoc district.
Covering an area of 80,000sq.m, the school is part of the US$10 million grant project sponsored by Taekwang, and is expected to be completed and put into operation in September 2017.
The school will use the educational model of RoK’s Deakyoung University. Each year, the school will train around 350 high-skill students for different jobs, such as hotel management, casino, beauty care, cooking, and information technology.
Addressing the ceremony, Chairman of the Kien Giang provincial People’s Committee Pham Vu Hong affirmed the significance of the school, saying that when operational, the school will train skilled workers for the tourism sector in Phu Quoc, contributing to boosting the local economic development.
Park Noh-wan, RoK Consul General to Ho Chi Minh City believed that the school would contribute not only to boosting the education cause of Vietnam but also strengthening the relationship between the two countries.
Teakwang is one of the first businesses operating in Vietnam.
Over the past 21 years, the group has hired more than 52,000 Vietnamese workers.
