Resolution No. 52/NQ-CP aims to comprehensively improve physical and intellectual abilities, working styles and disciplines, and professional skills for people from ethnic minority groups that lack human resources, in order to step by step narrow the development gap between areas and meet the labor market’s demand at present and in the future.
The Resolution also looks to build a contingent of ethnic minority intellectuals, entrepreneurs, cadres and workers meeting quality requirements, thus promoting socio-economic development and sustainable poverty reduction and ensuring national defense and security.
Specifically, the country will strive to increase the life expectancy of ethnic minority people to 73 years and 75 years by 2020 and 2030, respectively, while reducing the rate of malnourished under-five children in ethnic minority groups to 29 percent by 2020 and 19 percent by 2030.
By 2020, the number of ethnic minority students in universities and colleges is expected to reach 130-150 per ten thousand people. Meanwhile, over 30 percent and 50 percent of ethnic minority people in working age will receive vocational training by 2020 and 2030, respectively.

To realize the above targets, the Resolution proposes a series of solutions, such as expanding semi-boarding schools for ethnic minority pupils in poor districts; organizing junior secondary and upper secondary classes in district-level general schools; developing the contingent of ethnic minority teachers; and increasing levels of scholarships for boarders and support for day boarders as suitable to reality and local budget capacity.
Other solutions include developing high-quality vocational training institutions for ethnic minority students, providing more information on labor markets, and intensifying career counseling and job generation for ethnic minority people.- (VLLF)
