The area of cooperation agreed between the two parties centers on elevating the local workforce’s wellbeing. GIMO is committed to increasing local workers’ access to a reliable and affordable digital financial solution, that is, on-demand pay, while actively engaging in welfare activities.    

The Trade Unions currently represent 110,000 workers from the Linh Trung I, II; Binh Chieu, Cat Lai, and Saigon Hi-tech Industrial Parks. The agreement would lay a strong foundation for a more financially resilient employee force.  

As part of the ceremony, GIMO also awarded 10 Nguyen Duc Canh scholarships to students whose families experienced financial hardship due to COVID-19.

In recent years, the union members have been encouraged and assisted by the welfare programs of the Trade Unions of Ho Chi Minh City’s Industrial and Export Processing Zones to settle their lives.  

In recent years, thanks to the welfare programs initiated by Ho Chi Minh’s Federation of Industrial and Export Processing Zones, local workers now have more timely support and better focus at work.
