Addressing the event, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Vu Quang Minh said that in addition to its activities to ensure social security issues, the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA) has also played a important role in negotiations on labour cooperation and settlement of problems related to gender equality.

MoLISA’s support has greatly helped in mobilising funding from other countries for Vietnam, and importantly contributed to support heads of Vietnamese representative agencies abroad, he said.

Thanh affirmed that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, especially heads of Vietnam's representative missions overseas, have helped MoLISA ensure sustainability of labour and employment markets, thus benefiting Vietnamese guest workers abroad.

He said that in recent years, Vietnamese labourers working abroad have been well trained and supported so they have met requirements in foreign markets.

The cooperation between the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has achieved many good results in recent years, especially in protecting rights of labourers working abroad through the support of embassies, he noted.

One of the goals in 202 is to continue improving the quality of human resources, creating drastic changes in the quantity, structure, quality and effectiveness of vocational education, especially high-quality training, he said.

MoLISA is cooperating with partners through nearly 200 agreements and Memorandum of Understanding (MoUs) signed between Vietnam and more than 40 countries and territories, nearly 20 international and regional organisations, and more than 40 foreign non-government organisations, he noted.

Thanh expressed his belief that specialised agencies of the two ministries as well as heads of Vietnamese representative missions abroad will do their best to complete their duties in the time to come.

For their part, heads of Vietnamese representative missions abroad said they hope that MoLISA and relevant agencies will continue popularise information about the labour markets to local workers.
