Foreigners without work permit to be deported

The Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA) has asked localities to tighten the management of foreign workers and consider expelling those without work permit in Vietnam.

Falling into this category are also those who fail to comply with immigration and residence laws in Vietnam, the MoLISA said in a telegram sent to cities and provinces across the country.

The MoLISA proposed that localities strengthen inspection and strictly handle production establishments that illegally receive and employ foreign citizens, as well as those who intentionally violate the law.

The ministry also proposed that cities and provinces tighten the granting of work permit to foreign citizens according to legal documents, including Government Decree 152/2020/ND-CP and the 2019 Labour Code.

Vietnam is currently confronted with the fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic which started in late April and has spread to 26 cities and provinces nationwide, with nearly 800 infections confirmed.

One of the potential risks, according to experts, comes from foreign citizens attempting to illegally enter Vietnam for employment or other purposes. Ho Chi Minh City recently deported 52 foreigners who had illegally crossed the northern border and travelled to the city for work, VOV reported.

State President meets with Ho Chi Minh City voters

State President Nguyen Xuan Phuc and candidates for the 15th National Assembly met with voters in Cu Chi and Hoc Mon districts of Ho Chi Minh City on May 14-15 via videoconference.

Presenting his platform, President Phuc affirmed that he will do his utmost to serve the nation and people.

He stressed the need for deputies to listen to voters’ aspirations and ideas and report them to the National Assembly, Party, State and relevant agencies, and pay more attention to locals’ substantial socio-economic affairs.

The State leader also requested municipal authorities to invest more in areas with slow development, build strong defense and security, exert efforts to improve the position and prestige of Vietnam in the international arena and speed up judicial reform.

For Cu Chi and Hoc Mon, the State President said it is necessary to develop general planning for the two districts in the city’s overall master plan to develop them into an ecological urban area during 2030-2045, with the highlight being the Northwest urban area.

On this occasion, President Phuc also visited and met with voters of Division 9 of Army Corps 4, during which he hailed the unit’s contributions to the national construction and defemce.

Besides, he also visited and presented gifts to several policy beneficiaries in Cu Chi and Hoc Mon districts, according to VOV.

People’s safety given top priority in COVID-19 fight, says PM

Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh on May 15 stressed the need to protect people’s health, considering this a primary task of the medical sector amid the complicated nature of the COVID-19 pandemic both domestically and globally.

Greater efforts are needed to effectively contain and repel the pandemic nationwide to protect people’s health in all circumstances, Chinh told the Ministry of Health’s leaders at a working session in Hanoi.

He affirmed that Vietnam has basically “controlled the situation” and most new cases have been recorded in quarantine and lockdown areas, thus posing no risk to the community.

However, the Government leader reminded health officials to stay highly vigilant, pointing to the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic remains evolving in a complex manner in a number of localities.

He asked the medical sector to draw lessons from past experiences, overcome shortcomings in COVID-19 control and perfect relevant policies to effectively fight the pandemic, as reported by VOV.

A new approach to epidemic prevention and control should be adopted, that is the offensive vs defensive strategy that should be implemented harmoniously, rationally and effectively, said the PM.

Underlining the importance of the ‘active attack’ strategy, the PM asked the medical sector to pool resources for contact tracing and extensive testing, including information technology applications, to early detect and quarantine positive cases.

Lao leader thanks Vietnam for support in COVID-19 fight

Lao Party General Secretary and State President Thongloun Sisoulith has thanked Vietnamese leaders for their messages of sympathies over the COVID-19 situation in Laos.

In a thank-you letter to Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong and State President Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Thongloun Sisoulith said the Vietnamese leaders’ messages have vividly demonstrated the great friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between the two countries, NDO reported.

The Lao leader also highlighted Vietnam’s valuable, timely and effective support to Laos in personnel, medical supplies and medicines, saying the assistance has significantly contributed to the pandemic fight in his country.
