The implementing institution is Vinashin. The company has embarked on an ambitious development programme with a stated goal to become the fourth biggest shipbuilder in the world by 2015. In order to achieve this lofty goal, Vinashin has to ensure that their products satisfy the requirements of international rules and standards, and they have to expand their activities in constructing many yards in Vietnam and investing heavily in localization of shipbuilding materials, including paint production by themselves. One of the ideas that came up in the process was the training programme.

The training programme was designed with Det Norske Veritas(DNV) as the partner institution. Jotun Paints Vietnam decided to step in as a key sponsor both financially as well as responsible for imparting training on all aspects of the coatings module. Jotun Paints Vietnam will provide training services and financial support in this programme over a three year period from 2007-2009.

As soon as the official signing was concluded, the first two sessions for coating, run by Jotun already started, and there will be another 16 modules conducted over the next three years. The result will be that over 500 key Vinashin personnel have received training about all aspects of paints, including Jotun's products.

We think that this initiative and investment will further strengthen our position as the market leader and most professional paint supplier in this growing newbuilding market in Vietnam, says Dao Tuan Khoi, deputy general manager in Jotun Paints (Vietnam).
