HA NOI (VNS) — Ha Noi aims to create jobs for all disabled people of working age by 2020.

To achieve this goal, the city plans to invest VND2-3 billion (US$41,000) annually in vocational training for the disabled and make it easier for them to access information technology, as well as loans from banks and other funds that would help them start their own businesses.

According to the municipal People's Committee, the city will also focus on improving working conditions for disabled people and organising monthly job placement events for them.

Disabled people make up 15.3 per cent of Viet Nam's population of 90 million.

Insufficient education and training prevent them from landing stable jobs and regular incomes. — VNS
