The Vietnam General Confederation of Labour (VGCL) and the Federation of Trade Unions of Belarus (FTUB) have signed memoranda of understanding on cooperation between their trade unions.

At the talks between VGCL President Dang Ngoc Tung and FTUB Chairman Mikhail Orda in Hanoi on November 23, cooperation agreements were signed between trade unions of Ho Chi Minh City and Brest province, and between trade unions of the Vietnam agriculture and rural development and Belarus’s industry-agriculture.

Tung hoped that both sides will further foster economic, trade and cultural exchanges in the near future.

Orda, for his part, affirmed that the signing showed the resolve of the two countries’ trade unions in promoting their traditional cooperation.

Since establishing their ties in 1992, the two sides have partnered actively across industry and trade, banking, training in labour and trade union as well as supported each other at international forums.

In the foreseeable future, they will engage in information and experience sharing, and trade links between businesses.-VNA
