Dung, who is Permanent Representative of Vietnam to the United Nations (UN), World Trade Organisation (WTO), and other international organisations in Geneva, highly valued a report by the International Labour Organisation (ILO)’s Director-General on promoting social justice.

He said Vietnam will continue to reform and perfect the legal system to strengthen the social security and welfare system, promote decent and quality jobs, develop human resources, and build an effective labour market, thereby helping ensure a prosperous life for all people in accordance with the motto of "leaving no one behind".

The International Labour Conference is held annually by ILO with the participation of representatives of governments, employers, and workers from its 187 member states.

This year’s event is taking place from June 3-14, focusing on how to set labour standards, basic rights and principles in the workplace, and the promotion of decent work.
