EVFTA to create 146,000 more jobs for 2022-2025 period
It is forecasted that an additional 146,000 jobs will be made for 2022-2025, thanks to the EU-Viet Nam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) implementation. The above figure was shared at the Workshop to assess the impact of EVFTA on labor and employment issues, organized by the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) on Wednesday afternoon (23/1).
The reduction in export tax rates had a positive effect on increasing the average wages of workers. After the EVFTA came into effect, the average salary of employees increased by 11 percent.
