To provide qualified human resource for the logistics sectors, training schools should have innovation to the training schedule in the direction of equipping their students skills from basic levels to advanced ones; at the same time, they should have cooperation with enteprises for proper adjustments in training contents; giving opportunities for students and recruiters to meet for better enterprises’ recruitments.

Today a logistics service provider is able to provide various service packages from warehouses to warehouses through a synchronous system of providing materials serving production to warehousing- to transport, domestics forwarding and import-export. Therefore, in the training of logistics service and supply chain, students need to be equipped with knowledge and skills related to these contents.

Lacking and wea labor source which is unable to met development needs of the labor market and trend of developments causes difficulties to developments of Vietnam’s logistics. It is believed that the fact logistics is focused and then put into formal training at universities will meet the needs of the service sector in the future- the sector with a scale of over USD 22bn, accounting for over 20% GDP of the country with an annual growth rate of 20% - 25%.

For flights canceled by a government order due to COVID-19, had the travel company to return the airfares or deposits to its travellers immediately? Borrowing money from banks to buy and sell goods or services but not being able to do business, was it allowed to refuse or delay the payment of interest or late payment of principal due to COVID-19? Bank was unable to collect debts due to COVID-19. Was it a force majeure event?
