Decent work country programme for 2017-2021

This is the third decent work country programme between the ILO and tripartite constituents (the Government, the workers' and employers' organizations) to address the decent work challenges with an aim to assuring all Vietnamese women and men opportunities for work that is productive and delivers a fair income; security in the workplace and social protection for families; better prospects for personal development and social integration and freedom for people to express their concerns, organize and participate in decisions that affect their lives.

The Decent Work Country Programme for Viet Nam, 2017-2021, sets out 3 Country Priorities – identified in consultation with the International Labour Organization (ILO)'s national constituents – on which the ILO will seek to support Viet Nam's efforts. The priorities are to:
- Promote decent employment and an enabling environment for sustainable entrepreneurship opportunities;
- Reduce poverty by extending social protection for all and reduce unacceptable forms of work, especially for the most vulnerable; and
- Build effective labour market governance compliant with fundamental principles and rights and at work.
