|At the international symposium
Delegates to the July 15-16 event made the suggestion in the context that Vietnam has participated in many trade agreements.
They said international standards require the reform of labour relations in Vietnamese firms as well as the improvement of capacity of employees and their representative offices, and employers.
It is necessary to raise the quality of social dialogues at enterprises, and take solutions to prevent and reduce labour disputes and enhance state management in the labour sector, they added.
The symposium focuses on such issues as legal reform and law enforcement, globalisation and gender relations, challenges to labour relations, international migration, and rights of migrant labourers and children.
It is jointly held by the Ho Chi Minh City University of Law, the Southern Institute of Social Sciences, the International Labour Organisation, Germany’s Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, the University of Melbourne and the Monash University of Australia.
