During a two day training in DaNang in the centre of Vietnam 20 Employers participated in a special training as part of the Social Dialog project of VCCI/ BEA. This Project is initiated with support of the Norwegian Employers and Trade Unions to help the Vietnamese Chamber of Commerce on Employers side and the VGCL as Vietnamese Trade Union develop a framework for implementation of Social Dialog in 24 Vietnamese companies.
This training was a pilot as part of the framework and was facilitated by Vietnamese trainers, members of ‘The Club’. These trainers are trained with support of DECP by Dutch trainers. Country Manager Vietnam Dirk Joosse was there to support this activity and to discuss future activities in this Social Dialog Program. In June a next training will be planned. In this training it is foreseen that besides the Employers also the Workers Representatives from the participating companies will join the training. This will give the companies and their workers the opportunity to train in the actual setting of the Social Dialog as stated in the Labour Code of Vietnam.
