The Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs and the United States’ Manpower Group, an American multinational human resources consulting firm, agreed to expand their cooperation on exchanging experience during 2015-2018.

The extended cooperation, based on the results achieved by the two sides during 2008-2011 and 2014, is intended to promote the creation of more jobs, build a better labour market to support economic development, improve competitiveness and meet skill requirements during Vietnam’s international integration.

Specifically, the two sides signed a memorandum of understanding which will see them work together to build a legal framework to regulate the labour market, create policies on job placement service activities and offer training for soft skills in Vietnam.

The Manpower Group will be responsible for providing technical assistance for cooperation activities.-VNA
