Southeast Asian Country of Vietnam Needs More Qualified Professionals, Better Policies To Expand Fintech Sector

By Omar Faridi

Vietnam reportedly doesn’t have enough skilled professionals needed to support the growth of the nation’s Fintech focused economy. The Southeast Asian country is home to more than 96 million residents, making it the world’s 15th most populous nation. Its GDP stands at around $250 billion.

Authur Leong, head of strategy, special project and Fintech investment at Singapore’s United Overseas Bank (UOB), says that the development of a Fintech ecosystem in Vietnam would require more qualified professionals. People can be trained by enrolling in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) programs. They can also take part in reskilling activities.
