Ministry works to ensure warm Tet for social policy beneficiaries

The Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA) has devised specific solutions to ensure a warm Tet (Lunar New Year) festival for social policy beneficiaries, and support those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Such solutions form part of a recently-issued action plan, under which the ministry also prepared resources to support labourers in case of risks amid the pandemic.

The MoLISA will continue with the policy on poverty reduction, and effectively implement the national target programme on sustainable poverty reduction, with priorities given to poor households in ethnic minority-inhabited areas.

Notably, vulnerable groups will receive both regular and unscheduled assistance, according to the plan.

The ministry said operating the labour market effectively in line with the country’s economic recovery and development is one of the major tasks, with attention paid to the application of information technology and digital transformation to enhance the labour supply-demand connectivity.

To recover the labour market and improve personnel quality, the ministry will pay more heed to vocational training and develop skilled workforce.

The action plan was adopted after the Government issued Resolution No. 01/NQ-CP on tasks and solutions to implement the plan on socio-economic development and state budget estimate for 2022./.
