VietNamNet Bridge – Seventy-four percent of workers in the manufacturing & processing industry in Vietnam are expected to lose their jobs because of the impact of the fourth industrial revolution, the highest level among ASEAN countries, according to a report from the Central Economics Committee.
The average productivity was $3,360 in 2015
The report pointed out that 74 percent of workers in the manufacturing & processing industry are expected to be replaced by robots. The figure is higher than the 54 percent of the Philippines, 58 percent of Thailand and 67 percent of Indonesia.

They mostly do assembling or simple work which can be replaced by machines,” the report said. Continue reading “Most workers in manufacturing in danger of being eliminated”
