Vietnam, Canada ink MoU on labour cooperation
Representatives from the MoLISA’s Overseas Labour Management Department and four Vietnamese labour export businesses attended the event.
Under the MoU, the Vietnamese Government and Saskatchewan provincial authorities will facilitate Vietnamese workers working and immigrating into the province.
Saskatchewan ’s Ministry of AEEL will provide the Vietnamese Ministry of Labour, War Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA) with information on local enterprises’ employment demand. Meanwhile, the MoLISA will provide a list of labour export businesses to the Ministry of AEEL.
Speaking at the signing ceremony on Jan. 15, Ambassador Hung emphasised the importance of the MoU, saying that it would open prospects for bilateral cooperation in labour, employment and human resource development between Vietnam and Saskatchewan in particular and between Vietnam and Canada in general.
The Vietnamese diplomat highlighted Saskatchewan ’s huge demand for labourers, saying it would be a promising labour market for Vietnam.
He said he hoped Vietnamese guest workers would help not only increase the provincial population and but also settle the shortage of workers while promoting Saskatchewan ’s investment and economic development.
Minister Rob Norris said Saskatchewan has flexible policies to attract immigrants, especially skilled workers.
The MoU will help promote and expand cooperative relations between Canada and Vietnam , he said, hoping that the Vietnamese community with around 2,000 people will become stronger and contribute to building an active and dynamic community in Saskatchewan .
While in Canada , the delegation of the MoLISA’s Overseas Labour Management Department and four Vietnamese labour export businesses met and discussed with Saskatchewan provincial authorities and local businesses on prospects for future labour cooperation./.
