Viet Nam will not increase the number of job service centres in the next decade, a government decision has said.
Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung this week issued Decision 1833/QD-TTg to approve a national plan on networking employment service centres from the period 2016 to 2025.
The decision has ordered a limit on the number of centres to 24 in the northern mountain region, 37 in Hong (Red) River Delta, 30 in northern central and coastal central region, and five in the Central Highland, in addition to 14 in southern east and 21 in the Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta.
It has also set a target to promote 100 per cent of labourers accessing job services such as counselling and vocational training at job centres by 2020, of whom 70 per cent will find jobs or approach opportunities. It also set a goal to help 50 per cent of employers approach labour sources.
On the management and organising activities, the decision urged all job centres to boost their role as facilitators between employers and employees.
Job centres should provide adequate information to both employers and labourers before signing of labour contracts, it said.
Moreover, the decision also demanded that job authorities fulfil the legislative documents on managing employment service centres, policies on recruitment and employment process, and upgrade working conditions for those employed at job service centres.
