    When dialogue makes good sense for businesses and workers alike

    The successful introduction of effective and regular systems for employers and workers to communicate has boosted productivity and improved working conditions in a Viet Nam auto production company. It has also shown how important it is for such initiatives to be replicated more widely so that new laws bring real, grassroots change.

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.

    The issue of work in fishing is important for countries in Asia, including Southeast Asia. Over 87 per cent of the world’s fishers and 73 per cent of the global fleet of fishing vessels come from Asia (FAO, 2012). Cambodian and Myanmar migrant workers, for example, work on Thai vessels fishing in Malaysian and Indonesian waters; while beyond the ASEAN region, Vietnamese, Indonesian and Filipino fishermen also work on Korean and Taiwanese vessels.
