Regarding social insurancepolicy reform, Phan Van Men, Director of the Ho Chi Minh City Social Security,said about 224,000 labourers at 20,000 micro-and small businesses in the cityhave yet to join social insurance. 

However, social insuranceagencies struggle to access businesses which have ghost addresses, he said,describing the amended Law on Social Insurance, which took effect on January 1,2018,  as a useful tool to manage social insurance in each locality.

Thu’s view was echoed by DamLuc Si, Director of the Social Security of the southern province of Soc Trang,who said the social insurance policy should prescribe suitable regulations toreduce one-time social insurance benefit.

Meanwhile, Vi Van Vuong,Chief of the Office of the People’s Council and the People’s Committee of BinhLieu district, Quang Ninh province, said it is a must to revamp the assessmentof officials, combine the planning of the management and leadership posts withthe planning of professional officials, especially young, female and ethnicminority ones.
