Supporting Vietnam’s logistics sector

AIS through our business arm, AIS Global, continues its support for the Logistics Industry Reference Committee (LIRC) in Vietnam, an initiative of the Australian Government’s Aus4Skills program. The LIRC is focused on supporting the needs of the Vietnamese logistics sector in having a highly skilled workforce with a pressing focus on supporting the recovery response to COVID-19.

At the recent LIRC meeting, conducted in April via webinar, we provided some insights from an Australian perspective and support for the work they are currently undertaking in response to COVID-19 impacts. Members provided valuable input from their business approaches and learnings and that of their broader networks.

The importance of an engagement and advisory forum, such as the LIRC, to provide critical real-time information from across business as well as the VET sector to support on-the-ground initiatives was highlighted. An impact assessment report is being developed by the LIRC to support their advice as well as to inform skills forecasting.

Our work in developing a five-year roadmap to guide the LIRC’s forward work program is being finalised as well as support for their communication activities and operations more broadly.
