HCM City (VNA) –
Politburo member and Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh City’s Party Committee Nguyen Thien Nhan hailed Pou Yuen Vietnam Co., Ltd., a footwear business in Binh Tan district for the good implementation of social welfare policies for its workers while visiting the company on February 1.

He noted that since entering HCM City in 1994, the company has expanded its scale of production thanks to the application of technology while paying attention to facilities serving workers’ life such as kindergartens, toilets and hospitals.

Nhan reminded the firm to anticipate the impacts of the fourth industrial revolution on the footwear sector, and build specific plans to develop a skilled workforce and support workers made redundant in line with Vietnamese law.

HCM City authorities will accompany and support the company for its long-term development, he promised.

Leaders of Pou Yuen Vietnam Co., Ltd. hoped the city will create conditions for the company to apply state-of-the-art technologies and recruit high-quality human resources.

They reported that the company has already paid Tet bonus for workers, adding that it will cover 30 percent of the travel fares for workers who go home for Tet in the central and northern regions.

Pou Yuen Vietnam has six branches across Vietnam with nearly 160,000 workers.

In 2017, the company produced over 72 million pairs of sports shoes, earning revenues of over 1.2 billion USD.-VNA
