ILO Country Office for Viet Nam (CO-Hanoi)

Welcome to the ILO Country Office for Viet Nam. The ILO and its tripartite constituents – the government together with representatives of employers and workers organizations – play its role within the UN and multilateral system supporting Viet Nam’s socio-economic development. In partnership with our constituents, the ILO provides technical assistance on a range of key labour market development issues. We focus on creating more and better jobs through enterprise development, ensuring basic social services for all, and building triparatism by promoting industrial relations and social dialogue.
