VCCI Hails Business Associations for Contribution to Revised Labor Code 2019
March 16, 2020, 02:15 PM
On March 4, 2020 in Hanoi, VCCI Vice President Hoang Quang Phong awarded the certificates of merit of VCCI President to seven units for their valuable contributions to the construction of the revised Labor Code 2019. The awardees included the Vietnam Electronic Industries Association (VEIA), the Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association (Vitas), the Vietnam Leather, Footwear and Handbag Association (Lefaso), the Food and Foodstuff Association of Ho Chi Minh City (FFA), the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP), the Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI) and the American Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (AmCham).

In the context of global international economic integration and the participation in new-generation free trade agreements (FTAs), the National Assembly’s adoption of the Labor Code 2019 will create many opportunities but also pose challenges to businesses, especially in executing domestic labor policies and laws and labor standards as well. To make labor policies and laws practicable and highly enforceable, the President of the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) decided to set up a working group to engage enterprises to compile, inform and execute labor policies and laws and labor relations.

The composition of the working group includes VCCI, representatives of business associations, enterprises and experts in labor and labor relations.

The working group is tasked to give opinions to compiled laws; join forces to make legal documents to direct the enforcement of the Labor Code, the Law on Social Security, the Law on Trade Union, the Law on Vocational Education and other legal documents; inform and mobilize enterprises to well implement labor policies, laws and labor relations; and participate in other related activities.
