HA NOI (VNS) — Viet Nam has issued many legal documents guiding the implementation of labour laws, but enforcement poses a steep challenge, agreed participants at a seminar in Ha Noi on Tuesday.

Viet Nam has ratified most of the 17 conventions of the International Labour Organisation and introduced them into its legal system, according to the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA).

These include the Labour Code revised in 1994 and 2012, the 2006 Vocational Training Law, the 2006 Social Insurance Law and the 2012 Trade Union Law.

The country has also implemented projects ensuring sustainable employment and gender equality for labourers.

However, delegates said that the lack of a systemised database on employment, vocational training, wokers' income and standards of living hindered the creation of suitable laws. — VNS
