NDO/ VNA - Head of the Party Central Committee’s Mass Mobilisation Commission Truong Thi Mai has praised the International Labour Organisation’s support for Vietnam in building the legal frameworks related to labour standards and social security.

Mai affirmed that they are valuable and necessary contributions to Vietnam during its renewal process, thus contributing to harmonising international commitments that the country has engaged in during law implementation, at a reception for ILO Director Chang-hee Lee in Hanoi, on August 16.

The ILO Director, for his part, said ILO in Vietnam is trying to connect and associate with the country in addressing problems related to workers and labour relations.

The ILO is piloting a number of initiatives in small and medium sized enterprises in the southern Dong Nai and Binh Duong provinces, aiming to improve labour productivity and raise workers’ income, he said, adding that the initiatives are expected to be expanded to include the groups of garments, wood processing, electronics and seafood businesses.

He shared Mai’s opinions on salary, retirement age and overtime, saying that they are also of interest to ILO and his organisation will continue helping Vietnam in completing the related policies and laws.
