Media Coverage about Fundamental Rights and Professional Health Safety for the Workers

Press and the public Tuesday, 11:33 27-04-2021

In recent years, the media has made an important contribution to the communication of fundamental labour rights and professional health safety, which helps to improve social knowledge, understanding, sympathy, assistance and support. However, the protection of fundamental labour rights and health safety in Vietnam still witness shortcomings and limitations: the workers do not understand their rights fully; they are a vulnerable group and do not have the gut to voice their concern to the employers to protect their benefits. If they have any questions or recommendations, it often takes complicated steps and a long time to receive the answer. The resource to realize fundamental labour rights and health safety is constrained and is mostly provided from state budget with the limited scope and degree of support.

Promoting the role of publishing political theory books to fight against wrong and hostile views

Publishing political theory books is a task under the direct leadership of the Party Central Committee. After more than 20 years implementing Directive No. 20-CT/TW dated 27th January 2003 of the 9th-tenure secretariat, the task has basically met the demand for political theory books of officials, party members and people. It has become a channel for disseminating the Party's guidelines and policies, the State's policies and laws. Also, it has made an important contribution to protecting the Party’s ideological foundation, fighting against wrong and hostile views. The publications’ contents have far-reaching influence on theoretical and political issues, raising political awareness of party members to firmly trust the leadership of the Party and State.
