Important Role of Technology  Entrepreneurs & Talents Professionalism in a modern economy Economic Policy of modern time

One of the important factors in regenerating any economy is the quality and quantity of professional and industrial education. To improve our economy, we need to elevate the level of intellectuality and professionalism of line staff to mid-level managers - not necessarily top management especially for rebuilding nation such as Vietnam. The traditional American management doctrine of "selecting a quality general manager first then use money to attract better workers as robots" has lead to drastic downfall of their production or services behind China, who proves that the opposite presents better economic production methodology. Poor quality manpower at this level can directly disable any technology or products of that country. This is one of the dilemma in the US: They have the technology, the capital, the management software but poor production manpower is ruining their products and not because of China's advances. Individualism, arrogance, complacence and US labor policies and a problem-ridden educational system continue to mold workers to be less productive while allowing commercialism to corrupt their youth into a fat, playful, mindless population to be slaves to a life of social and economic uselessness. We need to avoid this serious mistake for our future generations. This means ANY nations, Vietnam, China or the US.

To improve production strength, it takes better workers - NOT better mangers alone - because managers do not do the production work,  workers do. Traditional schools do not and cannot prepare students for specific professional skills while professional schools by private companies are lacking of experience in practical agriculture, industry, production, machinery and international-related issues. Even if there are, these schools are intended for people with money. The poor, who is the bulk of the labor force, are not welcome. We need to have practical vocational and industrial training with direct relevance to our own industries but at a cost the poor can afford. VINAREX plans organize specific practical curricula to equip future generations of workers with new knowledge and skills necessary for modern world. Teachers will be Vietnamese scholars and volunteers from other nations. Classes will be at low cost or free in exchange for work with our project or by pay back with portion of their salary so we can continue to train others.


Trained workers for modernized agricultural, manufacturing and related industries are necessary in order to advance our production and product quality. There isn't such schools in Vietnam anyway especially at low cost for the poor.


Being in agriculture, manufacturing or businesses, we provide a better insight into educational need of the industry and to better our economy than our neighboring nations, we must also make our workers better than neighbors.


Conventional vocational and foreign schools charge a lot of money so those who are wealthier and who, upon graduation, will not like to become workers anyway. To prepare the foundations of a stronger economy, we need more trained workers - not more managers -  to work with modernized production and methods.


As businessmen and industrialists, we can develop more realistic curriculum than conventional academicians; We also need to create a training base to supply quality and capable manpower to our own industries being developed anyway.


Students can learn more effectively when there are on-the-job training, apprenticeship training within the industries we seek to develop. Therefore these schools will be a mutually supportive component for economic growth at a much lower cost than typical paid schools operated by private individuals or foreign companies.;


Whether we like it or not, foreign educational institutions will introduce the political and ideological connotations of their own nation in the course of their instructions. We prefer students to learn skills and information and maintain the teaching, the culture and other values as Vietnamese.


The poor does not have money to send their children overseas to study. We must develop a comprehensive overseas study, internships, work-study programs in various industries via the international companies or organizations we are working with so our students can acquire knowledge and experience from overseas.

These practical vocational classes as additional training are necessary for Vietnam so our labor population can contribute more effectively to a future economy in a productive and professional manner. Curriculum will be designed along the specific industries in today's world. Under this "low cost" network, students are selective and will participate in various programs and plans within our network of companies.

2-yr Supervisor programs

6-months workers programs

7) Special creation and training of new staff: Government specialists to prevent/detect abuses of chemicals, bio agents harmful to habitat, environment, waters, etc to protect public health, export, environment, etc

Similar to modern air security officers, we must create officers to protect exports economics and public interests.

Heavy fines must be required for environ-mental and infrastructural work.

In time, Vietnam must develop industries but must protect its human habitat, environment especially against the use of bio agents on plants, animals and contaminations of river, lake with industrial chemical, biological wastes. The abuses can lead to dangerous public health and threaten the future of our economy, agriculture.

These vocational or specialist training programs must be planned immediately and to take place no later than the first year of operations (other literature/theory/admin programs can start earlier) so by the 3rd year of operations, we may have trained sufficient number of staff and workers for us and/or for Vietnam industries in the future.


There are unique problems in providing quality training/education in Vietnam especially in vocation-related training. These problems must be addressed and resolved so students/people can be effectively retrained to advance the country into a stronger nation in Asia.

Issues or Concerns

Interim Solution Future Solution

Lacking of books, books are in English

Using On-line books, selling printers at low cost for students to use at home Importing books or reprint them in Vietnam

Students lacking of English skills

On-line Google translations or other translations Reprint books in Vietnamese (with permission from author)

Lacking of Audio-Video Equipments, printing equipments

Must request government for special import permits Low or no duties on books, educational materials

Distant Students in many Provinces

Internet/on-line studies Same as previous answer

Lacking of teachers

Teacher volunteers from US; train graduates from Vietnam and overseas to be teachers Special training of Vietnamese graduates to become permanent teachers

Lacking of practicing equipments

Seeking used equipments Donations of used/new equipments from Japan & US

These temporary solutions are just for the beginning. We hope that within a few years of our operations, we can generate sufficient supports and donations international and educational organizations to purchase useful equipments and supplies for these schools.


If we can be a little innovative, we can create a system upon which students can learn, can repay yet becoming meaningful citizens not only for our organization, for the local Provinces but also for others

Payment Methods

Explanation Great for himself and for society

Working at VINAREX as interns or pay back a % of income ea month

This is a common method: A percentage of income to be deducted so school can train others

Working at VINAREX will help both the organization and the student to gain experience for further professional development

To become Teacher-Assistant of the same class later

If student is with skills, he/she can be trained to become assistants in the classes; This is also good for the School

During the growing stage, we need to develop as many teachers as we can to expand these classes to more students

To be responsible to take care of a talented child and tutor him/her

This is a part of our plan: Trained student is to sponsor or to become "older brother" to a talented young student and be responsible to care for the young to excel in his talents or skills

This process or method facilitate constructive social relationship and to strengthen both persons' sense of pride, happiness in their growth and making better citizenry for both

To volunteer to assist farmers on a crop or product related to his studies

To assist a farmer with his crop is also a great way to be productive and to gain further experience or connections with the community

Farmers can pay with the extra income made from his products, etc. This helps farmers increase production and create great friendships

To work at the school in any capacity to help new students

When necessary or useful, students to work in the same school to help with the operation or with new students

Special training of Vietnamese graduates to become permanent teachers

These innovative payment methods are great for the students to have a chance to learn, to appreciate social relationships among people and to gain a sense of personal pride in social responsibilities and in contributing to others. This is important and useful for an individuals. Such teaching not only create positive change in society, it produces more talents at lower costs to society. Pitifully this method is not acceptable in the US, for example, as it may be viewed as a hindrance to profits for private school business and other issues.

The above examples illustrate the importance of education in the future of Vietnam's economy. Education has always been important for Vietnamese. This tradition has been exploited for business profits by domestic and foreign companies. Some even  charge high prices for useless "diplomas" and "certificates" without much credibility or no real use in life. High cost in education will continue to breed more managers to pressure higher median wage without increasing economic output. High costs of education will exclude the poor from better education and will make more Vietnamese to grow up just to become another $100 a month slave for foreign factories because they did not have money to pay for schools. By providing the poor with an educational opportunity and at low cost, we hope that other business-oriented schools will lower their prices for the people. If they don't, we will consider setting up permanent national school network at low cost within 5 years with profits we make from our agricultural and industrial operations.
