A training course to promote the management skill and productivity of Vietnamese enterprises was held in the northern province of Quang Ninh on October 26.

Jointly organised by the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour (VGCL) and the Japanese International Labour Foundation (JILAF), the event was attended by staff from the provincial trade unions of Bac Ninh, Hai Duong, Quang Ninh and Hai Phong city, as well as representatives from the Vietnam National Coal and Mineral Industries Group.

Speaking during the course, VGCL’s Vice President Mai Duc Chinh said promoting better management and a productivity increase in enterprises are interlinked with ensuring the interests of the labour force, as they help build harmonious and stable labour relations, befitting all interested parties.

According to Hisashige Danno, Chief Executive of JILAF, the success of any enterprise always depends on employees, thus it is necessary to establish good labour relations in order to develop a sustainable economy.

The course is aiming to reinvigorate trade unions at grassroots level and bring employers and employees closer together. It will run until October 29.-VNA
