At the seminar

Addressing the event, MOLISA’s Deputy-Minister Doan Mau Diep held that Vietnam has made considerable efforts in solving the issue of child labor. Particularly, Vietnam is the first country in Asia and the second one in the world ratifying the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, he noted. The country also issued legal documents and policies to promote children law, especially stopping child labor.

Child labor has become an international issue because there are around 168 million child laborers worldwide according to the ILO’s statistics. Children, who have to work early, could not reach an adequate development, thus negatively affecting the country’s future labor force.

At the seminar, delegates shared experiences and proposed recommendations on how to identify child labor, amend relevant regulations in the legal documents and so one.
