Decree on employing foreigners issued

The Government has issued a decree to complete the regulations on the employment and management of foreigners working in Viet Nam.

Under new Decree 46/2011/ND-CP, foreigners who lose their working permits or their working permits have been corrupted or they have obtained a new passport or changed their work place can be re-issued with new working permits.

The new decree, which complements Decree 34/2008/ND-CP, also has regulations for foreigners coming to Viet Nam to carry out projects.

When making tender document, investors must include regulations about employing Vietnamese workers, and foreign workers according to the law.

Investors must give high priority to hiring Vietnamese workers where the work is within their capacity.

If a project needs foreign workers with professional knowledge suitable to the project, the investors’ documents covering tender procedures must call for a detailed plan on employing foreigners, including work positions, the number of foreigners, their qualifications and experiences and work time.

Chairmen of people’s committees are responsible for steering relevant bodies to provide Vietnamese workers to foreign investors.

Uncle Ho’s memorial site to be renovated

The renovation of a memorial site to President Ho Chi Minh at a cultural park in the southern city of Ca Mau has been given the thumbs up by President Nguyen Minh Triet.

Covering 12,000sq m, the memorial site includes a fishpond, a sanctury and a house on stilts with memorabilia of the late president. The VND30 billion ($1.46 million) project will be funded by PetroVietnam.

Announcing the project yesterday, Triet said it was a demonstration of the people’s deep feelings and respect for President Ho, father of the nation and a man of culture as recognised by UNESCO.

“One of his greatest hopes was to visit his fellow countrymen in the south,” Triet said.

“Following his death, many southerners have expressed their wishes to pay homage to him in his mausoleum.”

The memorial was a good place to educate younger generations about the Vietnamese people’s patriotic tradition and heroism, Triet said.

He asked the city authorities and contractors to ensure the quality of the cultural project which would mark the 121st anniversary of the birth of Uncle Ho on May 19, 1890.

Criminal situation remains complicated

Party Politburo member Truong Tan Sang has praised the procuracy sector’s efforts to investigate and prevent crime commitments.

At a meeting on June 26, Mr Sang spoke of serious problems arising from drug-related and criminal gangs.

He requested the sector to improve its personnel work, legal institution and professional ethics.

Mr Sang said the procuracy sector needs to actively engage in the process of judicial reform within the law with the aim of reducing wrongful trials and letting no criminals escape punishment.

Tran Quoc Vuong, Head of the Supreme People’s Procuracy, said the sector will continue to disseminate the Party’s policies and guidelines and improve justice at all levels of procuracy.
