Nguyen Dinh Khang elected as new Trade Union head

Party Central Committee member Nguyen Dinh Khang was elected President of the Vietnam General Confederation of Labor (VGCL), at a meeting in Hanoi on Sunday.

Mr. Khang will replace Mr. Bui Van Cuong who will take up the role of Secretary of the Dak Lak Provincial Party Committee.

The trade union will focus on renewing its activities, enhancing the protection of its members and workers, and fine tuning its apparatus, said Mr. Khang.

Head of the Party Central Committee's Commission on Mass Mobilization Truong Thi Mai asked Mr. Khang to continue upholding the VGCL's role as an organization that unites workers, protects their rights and connects them with the Party and State.

The trade union has three missions: representing workers' legitimate rights, attracting more members, and serving as a bridge between workers and the Party, said Mai.
