A Swiss delegation led by federal councillor Guy Parmelin recently visited a garment factory in Vietnam’s southern province of Dong Nai to assess positive changes in working conditions, competitiveness of the leading export industry and the fruits of the partnership between the Swiss government, Better Work Vietnam programme and the Vietnamese industry.

Parmelin is the head of the Swiss department of economic affairs, education and research.

The visit shows that compliance with international labour standards is demanded in the global economy, a Vietnamese newspaper report quoted Paula Albertson, Better Work Vietnam programme manager, as saying.

Better Work Vietnam is a flagship programme of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) to improve working conditions and boost competitiveness of the garment industry. Switzerland’s State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) is one of its primary donors.

Since 2010, Saitex International Dong Nai Company has been part of Better Work Vietnam. The factory produces jeans and employs more than 4,000. The unit showed the Swiss delegation factory improvements in efficiency, quality and working conditions made during their time collaborating with Better Work Vietnam. (DS)
