A high ranking delegation from the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour (VGCL) led by its president Dang Ngoc Tung is paying an official visit to Australia from July 30 to August 5.

According to the VGCL’s newspaper, the Lao Dong daily, Tung held talks with President of the Australian Council of Trade Union (ACTU) Ged Kearney in Melbourne on July 30.

The two trade union leaders briefed each other on their activities and discussed measures to further promote the traditional friendship and cooperation between the two sides, thus contributing to the Vietnam-Australia comprehensive partnership.

The ACTU is the only national-scale trade union organisation in Australia and it is established in 1927.-VNA
