Ambassador Le, the head of the Vietnamese Delegation to the UN, WTO and other international organizations in Geneva, represented the Vietnamese Government speaking at the 111th International Labor Conference.

She noted that Viet Nam appreciated ILO Director-General Gilbert F. Houngbo's report on the promotion of social justice, as well as his efforts and initiatives for boosting employment and social security towards decent and equitable work.

The diplomat highlighted Viet Nam's significant progress in ensuring post-pandemic social welfare via the creation of jobs. The unemployment rate of local people at working age was 2.25 percent in the first quarter of 2023, down by 0.07 percentage points from the end of 2022.

Le stated that Viet Nam is committed to further overhauling and completing related policies and laws as well as joining hands with other ILO members to tackle challenges facing the future of employment and promote social justice.

The 111th International Labor Conference drew the participation of tripartite representatives including governments, employers and workers of 187 member countries.

This is the first time since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic that the International Labor Conference is being held completely again in a face-to-face format.

The Conference addressed many issues, including a just transition towards sustainable and inclusive economies, quality apprenticeships, and labor protection.

It also considers amending 15 international labor documents after the ILO included a safe and healthy working environment within the framework of fundamental principles and rights at work, and discussed equality between men and women in the workplace./.
