Project launched to make sure Vietnam's trade deal with EU endorses worker's right

A project launched to ensure that the country’s trade deal with the European Union explicitly safeguards labour and environmental standards, which are laid out by EU and UN guidelines. The project, in partnership with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) and funded by the EU, was launched at a conference in Hanoi on 25 July 2018.”

The project funded by the EU, upholds the participation of workers’ representatives in the implementation and monitoring of the relevant aspects of the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA). It is titled “Business and Human Rights in Trade Relations and Global Supply Chains in Vietnam” and shortly referred to as the BHRTR project. As one of the main components, the projects aims to uphold inclusive participation in the implementation and monitoring of the sustainability chapter of the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA). This objective will first be realised through awareness raising campaigns on the chapter’s particular mechanisms which provide for the participation of non-state actors.
