AIESEC Vietnam in coordination with the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) organized the YouthSpeak Vietnam Forum 2018 themed “The 4.0 Millennials” in HCMC early this week with an aim to help the younger generation solve social issues and find solutions to problems based on the United Nations’ 17 sustainable development goals.

YouthSpeak is an event held annually since 2016, combining a series of activities like forums, job fairs and seminars, with two main programs including the Economy – Finance and the Technology forums.

This year’s event was attended by more than 400 students from prestigious universities in HCMC like University of Technology, University of Science, University of Information Technology and FPT University, together with representatives of enterprises, and governmental and non-governmental organizations.

At the forum, the speakers presented and discussed with the students human resource changes in the information technology sector in the future, critical skills that IT students need to meet recruiters’ requirements such as customer experience and product mindset, and strengths and weaknesses of IT students in the fourth industrial revolution.
