Mexico (VNA) - A delegation from the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour (VGCL) led by Vice President Nguyen Thi Thu Hong joined 65 international delegations at the 18th Congress of the Foundation for International Space Education (FISE) in Mexico from March 4-5.

In his speech at the event, President of the VGCL’s Vietnam Education Trade Union Vu Minh Duc praised efforts made by FISE in protecting the rights of workers in the education sector.

He said his agency wishes to expand cooperation with educational trade unions across the world, thus enhancing experience sharing in education and labour union activities.

The organisation is working to protect the rights and interests of teachers and employees in the field, he said.

He added that the Vietnam Education Trade Union is an active member of the ASEAN Council of Teacher – a forum for sharing experience in union activities among ASEAN member countries’ education sectors, thus promoting education-training reforms in each country.

On the sidelines of the event, Vietnamese delegates met with General Secretary of the National Coordination of Education Workers of Mexico Victor Manuel Zavala, and Deputy General Secretary of the World Federation of Trade Unions Valentin Pacho, during which they discussed how to boost education union-related connection between Vietnam and Mexico.-VNA
