HA NOI (VNS) — A government decree today announced an eight per cent increase in wages for government officials, public servants and members of the armed forces with a salary coefficient lower than 2.34.
The decision is in accordance with the government plan to implement the country's pay increase schedule, which is intended to benefit millions of government employees.
The wage increase will be funded by saving money from regular office expenses, as well as from their own funds left over from the previous years.
The increase in wages has been calculated from January 1, while the decree will take effect in April. — VNS
