We would like to circulate the draft of the revised Labor Code – Version 05/2011 (only available in Vietnamese), which we just received from MOLISA. This new version demonstrates a number of changes resulted from recommendations of business community and government agencies. Currently, the Draft is published for further consultation.

Kindly send your comments/inputs as soon as possible to the VBF secretariat at vbf@ifc.org.

Your comments will then be consolidated and sent to MOLISA.

For your information, we are trying to arrange a meeting with MOLISA to discuss labor issues in relation to the Draft Labor Code (version 05/2011) and other relevant issues in early July, 2011

Look forward to receiving your comments
