The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors will help Vietnam train local personnel skills to boost development of the country's property market.
Max Crofts, president of the worldwide property professional group that calls itself the "world's leading professional body for qualifications and standards in land, property and construction," said the Vietnamese market needed international standard surveyors who play important roles as lawyers, consultants and even accountants.
With other stakeholders, the surveyors would contribute to sustainable development of the market, attracting more foreign investors, Crofts said during his visit to Vietnam last week.
Crofts said training courses over a 3-year period would be held regularly in Vietnam to help attendees gain experience and knowledge about the industry.
RICS, the world's largest membership and standards organization with over 140,000 members in 122 countries, said property prices in Vietnam were rebounding as the global economic recovery continues.
RICS would open its office later this year in Ho Chi Minh City, Crofts said.
