HA NOI (VNS) — President Truong Tan Sang on January 31 visited and extended New Year wishes to workers living away from home in Ho Chi Minh City , stressing that the Party and State always take heed of improving their lives.

Meeting with workers in Tan Thuan export processing zone in district 7, the president heard their concerns over issues such as salaries, incentives for home purchase, pre-schools for their children and improvement of their professional skills.

He expressed hope that they will work harder to hone their skills while asking trade unions to offer them all possible support along the way.

On the occasion, he also called on firms to improve the capacity of their staff so as to better integrate into the global markets.

The president informed workers that Vietnam is negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal with major partners including the US, the European Union and Russia, saying that this will help home enterprises expand consumption markets and generate more jobs for workers. — VNA/VNS
