HCM CITY — The HCM City Department of Labour, War Invalids and Social Affairs will focus on improving the quality of vocational training and training high-quality human resources to meet the requirements of enterprises.

At a recent conference to summarise activities in 2022 and launch tasks for 2023 for workers and people who have rendered meritorious services, the department reported that among the 61 main targets and tasks for 2022 by the department, 60 were achieved or surpassed.

The department implemented many activities connecting job seekers with employers such as a survey of labour supply and demand and job fairs. It also coordinated with other provinces and cities in the southern region to organise job exchange floors.

More than 315,000 people were offered jobs last year, a year-on-year increase of 3.28 per cent.

The number of new jobs was more than 141,000 in 2022, an increase of 0.23 per cent compared to the previous year.

The city’s unemployment rate of people at working age was 3.97 per cent.

The department organised 129 job fairs in person and online, offering career counseling for 571,496 people and introducing jobs for 167,013 workers.

Last year, the city Employment Service Centre provided unemployment benefits for 135,772 workers who were eligible for unemployment insurance benefits.

Besides improving human resources quality, the department will also focus on creating jobs and connecting labour supply and demand in the coming year.

The city authorities will create a favourable environment and conditions for people, production and business activities.

They will ensure social security and caring for the poor, the disabled, the elderly, orphans, policy beneficiaries and relatives of those who contributed to the nation’s revolution.

The city will continue improving the efficiency of public administrative reform, promoting digital transformation in association with improving the investment environment, attracting social resources, and supporting businesses to restore their production.

It will apply information technology in the management of policy beneficiaries and drug addicts; and promote gender equality and family development. — VNS
