From late 2022 till January 2023, some enterprises in the industrial parks encountered many difficulties due to the order reduction while the majority of them maintained stable production and business to ensure the labours’ benefit. Particularly, some gained good growth rate such as branches of Foxconn Technology Group, JA Solar Vietnam Company Limited, Vietnam Sunergy Company Limited among others.
The provincial Job Service Center (JSC) forecast that 84 companies in the province will register to employ nearly 28,000 labours, mostly untrained ones for electronic, plastic and garment production in the first quarter of 2023.
The Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affair directed the JSC to well implement the measures to timely support enterprises in labour employment and other impoverished organizations to stabilize labour situation in the province.
