While Viet Nam is now accelerating its regional and global market integration, its labour force continues to expand, totalling more than 53 million people. The country will also continue its urbanization trend, wielding major stress on urban centres in terms of employment, infrastructure and services.

Raising labour productivity and enhancing competitiveness will be a priority during the next years as Viet Nam looks to move up in regional and global production networks. In order to meet this goal, the ILO, through its various programmes and projects as well as employment-related researches and analyses, is helping Viet Nam to develop national employment strategies, job-centred development policies, promote skills and enterprise development, youth employment and better job creation.
