PM urges all possible support to workers in Dong Nai

Dong Nai, October 29 (VNA) – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc urged all possible support to be provided to help workers to improve their productivity and income during a two-hour dialogue in the Republic of Korea-invested Taekwang Vina company in Bien Hoa 2 industrial park, the southern province of Dong Nai on October 28. 

He agreed with workers’ proposals to increase cultural and entertainment activities such as film screening, sightseeing tours and exchanges, adding that localities were also asked to pay attention to housing to workers and ensure their safety by preventing stealing at work. 

The PM said the government will issue policies to encourage firms to hire the disabled and spread production emulation campaigns. 

On the occasion, he granted scholarships to five workers who are taking courses in vocational training colleges and laptops to a family with two generations of workers and a married couple living with disabilities. 

Workers at Taekwang Vina company also presented a pair of shoes made by themselves to the PM. 

Following the dialogue, the PM had dinner with workers at the dining room in the company. 

The Taekwang Vina company also took the occasion to present 200,000 USD to the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour in support of workers. 

Earlier, the PM visited Thai Quang preschool, a general clinic in the company, a lodging area for workers and a supermarket invested by the company. 

Dong Nai is now home to 35 industrial zones with more than 700,000 workers. More than one year since the first dialogue with the PM on May 1, 2016, workers’ average salary has risen by 7 percent. Industrial zones have lured additional 93 projects this year while over 98 percent of enterprises paid medical and social insurance for workers.
