Viet Nam School-to-work transition survey country summary

The objective of this country note is to offer a general summary of labour market trends for young people aged 15-29 in Viet Nam based on the School-to-work transition survey.

The ILO School-to-work transitions surveys (SWTS) are implemented as an outcome of the Work4Youth (W4Y) project, a partnership between the ILO and The MasterCard Foundation. The project has a budget of US$14.6 million and will run for five years to mid-2016. Its aim is to “promote decent work opportunities for young men and women through knowledge and action”. The immediate objective of the partnership is to produce more and better labour market information specific to youth in developing countries, focusing in particular on transition paths to the labour market.
