VOV.VN -Deputy Minister of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs Doan Mau Diep met on June 2 with Israeli Ambassador to Vietnam Meirav Elon Shahar in Hanoi to discuss cooperation, especially in labor.

Mr Diep said his Ministry will attend the 3rd round of negotiation of the Vietnam-Israel Free Trade Agreement in Israel this month and is expected to discuss labor cooperation between the two countries. 
The Ministry’s representatives will also attend the 2nd meeting of the Vietnam-Israel Joint Committee to negotiate their labor agreement.
