Vietnam’s social protection system needs further reform and strengthening towards realizing the goal of providing social protection for all in the country. This was one of the key take-aways of a consultation workshop co-organized by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the Institute for Labour and Social Affairs (ILSSA) in Hanoi, on 20 April, 2022. Participants at the event, which was financially supported by the Government of Japan and the Government of Ireland, included representatives from the Ministry of Labour - Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA), several international partners such as UNICEF, UNFPA, UNDP, UN Women and the World Bank and the drafting committee for reviewing the implementation of the Party’s Resolution No. 15-NQ/TW on social policies which covers social security.
They agreed that Vietnam has made significant progress since 2012 when this resolution was issued.
