Upon addressing the event, Nguyen The Manh, general director of the VSS, said it became the first dialogue of its kind to review the enforcement of laws regarding social and health insurance, thereby ensuring the rights and interests of workers.
Lee Jae-guk, an attaché in charge of labour and employment and a counsellor at the Korean Embassy in Vietnam, called for discussions to be held to solve business difficulties in the near future.
A VSS representative also used the platform to present fresh points in social and health insurance policies, whilst reporting the implementation of these insurance policies among foreign and Korean firms. This is along with a Government Decree on compulsory social insurance for foreign workers in the country.
The representative also mentioned a plan aimed at signing a bilateral agreement on social insurance between the nation and the RoK.
As part of the occasion, Manh presented certificates of merit to eight businesses for their competent efforts in carrying out legal policies on social and health insurance last year.
