If being approved, the changed level is expected to last until December 12, 2019.
 
According to the Vietnam Social Insurance Agency, unemployment insurance spending topped VND5.7 trillion (US$250.3 million) and the remainder of the fund was VND56 trillion ($2.46 billion) last year. The fund is forecast to still ensure safety by 2020.
 
Therefore, it is necessary to cut the contribution level to facilitate businesses’ development and competitiveness improvement.
