HANOI, Feb. 22 (Xinhua) -- Vietnam needs 5,000 to 10,000 chip design engineers each year, but its human resource supply capacity is only less than 20 percent, Vietnam News Agency reported Thursday, citing the national science and technology portal.

As of the end of 2023, Vietnam has had more than 5,500 chip design engineers.

A report by Technavio predicted that the Vietnamese semiconductor market may expand about 6.5 percent each year in the 2021-2025 period. However, human resource shortage has been the greatest challenge of the industry.

According to the country's Ministry of Education and Training, Vietnam now has 35 tertiary training establishments capable of providing semiconductor training programs, but the number of experienced ones is few.

Human resource shortage is one of the major factors making investors hesitate to pour their money into Vietnam, said the ministry.

The ministry has prepared an action plan in order to increase the quality and quantity of semiconductor human resources, especially IC design engineers. Enditem
