1. Background & Justification The Economy in Vietnam is increasing at a very fast rate of 8% resulting in the creation 30,000 new enterprises in the year The majority of these new enterprises were in the informal economy. The Labour Force is around 45 million people at 45% of the population and increasing annually by around 1.5 million new entrants. Skilled or well-trained workers account for a mere 27% of these new Labour Market entrants. These new entrants are very low-skilled and face many difficulties when they enter the Labour Market. VGCL recognizes the need of these people and wants to change their situation through training.
1. Background & Justification The official unemployment rate is set at 5.3% although in reality, the actual figure is much higher, with underemployment prevalent. Underemployment is high due to the fact that the young workers are not aware of their rights at work with respect to decent work. The youth and women of Vietnam are particularly affected by these situations due to the lack of awareness of Workers' Rights (WR), Decent Work (DW) and International Labour Standards (ILS). Unions face difficulties providing training to youth and women and the little training that is provided is really inappropriate in these times of globalization. Through this project, VGCL aims to raise among the people the awareness of the issues of WR, DW and the ILSs. This will eventually contribute to the strengthening of the union movement and ensure that new entrants to the Labour Market are better equipped to face the rapidly changing world of globalization.
2.Target Groups and other Parties The project will be targeted at the youth and women population of Hanoi, starting in the suburb of Dong Da Implementing agency The Socio-economic policies department of the VGCL will implement the project under the supervision of a working committee.
