Vietnam vows favourable conditions for the South Korean investors
According to the minister, Vietnam is improving its legal system and revising several laws, including the law on foreign employees working in Vietnam. The Vietnamese Government and the Ministry of Labour, War Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA) will focus on increasing negotiations between employers and workers to minimise State involvement in business operations.
The MoLISA will coordinate with the South Korean Ministry of Employment and Labour to sign agreements on social insurance and social protection towards providing better care for workers, Dung added.
For his part, Kyung affirmed that South Korean enterprises want to operate in a transparent manner, in accordance with the regulations of Vietnam and in the spirit of ensuring mutual benefits.
He pledged to make sure that South Korean employers will ensure fair treatment between Vietnamese and Korean employees to achieve the highest efficiency in business operations.
