He was speaking at a dialogue about social insurance policies between 400 foreign direct investment (FDI) companies and the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the federation and the agency.
At present, payment for social, unemployment and health insurances, trade union dues and the insurance fund of labor accidents and occupational diseases account for 35.5 percent of workers’ wage, Mr. Loi said.
