Law Firm - Officials to boost co-operation on labour issues with Laos
Vietnamese and Lao labour and social welfare officials gathered in the northern Lao province of Xieng Khouang yesterday for the second Viet Nam-Laos ministerial meeting on labour co-operation.
The meeting was an opportunity for both sides to share their experiences since the first meeting in the Vietnamese central city of Da Nang in 2009, said Lao Minister of Labour and Social Welfare Onnecchanh Thammavong.
It also provided a forum for discussing labour mechanisms and ways to improve labour management and investment effectiveness in the context of both countries' increasing co-operation and investment, he added.
Vietnamese Minister of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan said the event marked a new step in the field of labour and social welfare between the two countries, as well as the two relevant ministries.
In the meeting, the two sides discussed concrete proposals for co-operation in state management, thus contributing to implementing commitments made by the two countries' leaders, said Ngan.
The meeting focused on reviewing results from cooperative labour programmes over the past two years and discussed future strategies. Both sides planned to focus bilateral co-operation on policies on jobs, vocational training, unemployment insurance, overseas labour management and labour export.
In addition, the meeting dealt with priorities and measures to continue implementing bilateral programmes in vocational training and devising skill standards.
Viet Nam and Laos have seen strong development in bilateral investment co-operation. Viet Nam now runs 248 investment projects with a total registered capital of US$3.1 billion in Laos, mainly in electricity, mining, agriculture and services.
Cambodia welcomes Vietnamese Agent Orange delegation
PHNOM PENH — Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister Men Sam An received a delegation of the Viet Nam Association of Victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin (VAVA) in Phnom Penh on Monday.
The Cambodian Deputy PM praised Viet Nam's policies and VAVA's activities in its persistant struggle to demand justice for Vietnamese AO victims.
Men Sam An, who is also President of the Cambodian Women for Peace and Development (CWPD), was interested in VAVA's information on the spraying of the toxic substances by the US army on Cambodian land during the war, especially the area near the border with Viet Nam.
The Deputy PM said she would report the issue to her government with the aim of promoting possible research into the impacts of AO on Cambodian people.
VAVA President Nguyen Van Rinh said the excellent relations between the two countries created favourable conditions for the two peoples to jointly fight for justice for AO victims in both Viet Nam and Cambodia.
At the meeting, VAVA also gave an overview of some of its AO research projects in Viet Nam.
