VTV.vn - An estimated 540,000 jobs have been created in Vietnam in the first six months of this year, meeting just 36.5% of the set target due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the Department of Employment under the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, 120,000 jobs have been generated in June alone.

The rate of trained workers was estimated at 62.4% in the six-month period while the unemployment rate in urban areas was over 4% for the second quarter of this year.

The Department of Employment is working to make reports on employment of specific groups including youths, rural labourers, elderly female labourers, labourers at border areas, ethnic minority labourers, labourers with disabilities, labourers whose land has been acquired, and labourers who have completed a prison sentence.

The department has also developed proposals for the update of the labour supply and demand database, investigations into the needs of employees in various types of enterprises, forecasts of the labour market, and support of employment transactions in the 2021 - 2025 period.

In addition, the department has suggested that job service centres should enhance the connection between labour supply and demand and shorten the recruitment time in the context that the coronavirus has created huge impacts on the employment market.
