The figure was released at a forum on empowering women in the workplace in the context of the industry 4.0, held in Ha Noi on Tuesday.

Female workforce is a vulnerable group, thus their contributions to the society have not been recognized adequately.

Ngo Duy Hieu, Vice President of the Viet Nam General Confederation of Labor said that the forum aims to seek active and prompt solutions from relevant stakeholders to help women overcome challenges and obstacles at workplace amid multi-dimensional impacts of the 4th industrial revolution.

Choi Joo Ho, General Director of Samsung Viet Nam expressed his belief that only by thorough understanding and good preparation, can we help women turn such challenges into opportunities and affirm their role in the society.

As female workers account for more than 70% of the company’s workforce, the company has introduced social welfare policies to support them, especially pregnant women, Choi added./.
