IFC initiative to improve working conditions at apparel firms   2009-08-02 - TN

Work in progress at a textile and garments factory in Ho Chi Minh City.  
The International Finance Corporation (IFC) this month began offering its Better Work Vietnam services to help apparel firms in southern provinces improve working conditions for their staff.


The services include assessment against international labor standards and national labor law, customized advisory services for enterprises, and a range of training options for managers, supervisors, and workers.

Better Work Vietnam is being introduced in the country with the support of the International Labor Organization. The US$2.5 million, two-year service aims to benefit 700,000 workers in the southern provinces.

Tara Rangarajan, Better Work Vietnam’s program manager, said it looked forward to working as partners with Vietnamese apparel enterprises, workers, and the government of Vietnam to make sustainable improvements in labor conditions.

“The goal of our work is to find practical solutions that will decrease costs for project participants, enhance factory competitiveness in international markets, and reduce poverty among Vietnamese apparel workers, their families, and communities,” said Rangarajan.
