    IR Bulletin Volume .30 - Quarter III-2019

    19 December 2019

    Industrial relations (IR) in Viet Nam has been growing and getting more and more attention of the community. However, the IR information system in Viet Nam is still limited, sketchy and does not meet actual needs. Those who are interested in IR in general and those who are directly involved in IR tasks in particular do not have the opportunity to access necessary information to have a broader view of this field. Therefore, the New Industrial Relations Framework (NIRF) Project – International Labour Organization (ILO) has collaborated with the Center for Industrial Relations Development (CIRD) – Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) to develop periodical IR Bulletins in order to provide important information for people who are interested in this field to update the IR information in an objective and efficient manner.
