Difficulties relating to the employment and life of workers must be
resolved in a timely manner, said Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung at a
meeting on Feb. 27 with the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour.

Addressing the meeting, Dung hailed great contributions
by the workers and trade unions of all levels to the country’s
socio-economic development in 2012.

The coordination
between the government and the confederation last year was very close
and effective, Dung noted, stressing that the mechanism should be
further strengthened in 2013.

The considerable reduction
of labour disputes and strikes (down 44 percent against 2011) was an
outcome of the smooth coordination of the two sides..

Also at
the meeting, the PM and leaders of ministries and agencies gave opinions
on proposals by the confederation, which focused on policies on workers
and trade unions, labour safety and hygiene, and the building of
cultural life for workers in industrial zones. -VNA
