With the current unprecedented challenges on people and economies around the world due to Covid-19, the workforce ecosystem has been affected. Vietnam is no different and according to MOLISA, over 47,000 people have applied for unemployment insurance in February 2020, an increase of 59.2% compared to January 2020 and over 70% from the same timeframe last year.
Within this context, ManpowerGroup Vietnam together with the Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) organized the webinar - “Solutions to Sustainable Employment & Business - Sharing from International Experiences” in collaboration with international and local organizations. The forum welcomed nearly 100 executives from MOLISA, Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI), International Labor Organization (ILO), ManpowerGroup Country Managers in Asia Pacific & Middle East (APME) along with local and FDI enterprises sharing international experiences to Vietnam’s business community.
Mr. Le Van Thanh, Deputy Minister of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs who chaired the whole webinar said: “When the economy is reopened in a new normal state, one of the top priorities of the Vietnamese government is to create employment for people who have lost their jobs, ensuring the local workforce to re-join the labor market; promoting the role of enterprises from all economic sectors and actively participating in economic development, production and value chains brought by newly signed free trade agreements.”
