"Today, the number of young, dynamic and well-trained people in Viet Nam are increasing. With this hub, we are creating highly-qualified positions for this ambitious workforce who will contribute to the industrialisation of Viet Nam," Pham Thai Lai, Siemens Vietnam president and chief executive officer, said.

According to the company, employed Vietnamese engineers will undergo a training programme to gain theoretical knowledge at the Siemens headquarters in Germany and gain practical experience in various power plant project sites around the world.
