HA NOI — The mural on Decent Work and Tripartism as part of the 4km Ceramic Road was opened yesterday in the capital.

The work was presented to the Ha Noi People's Committee by the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs; Viet Nam General Confederation of Labour; Viet Nam Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Viet Nam Co-operatives Alliance and the International Labour Organisation (ILO).

The entire ceramic mosaic which runs along the Hong (Red) River dyke, is thought to be the longest such mural in the world.

The Decent Work and Tripartism section was accomplished with the support of the Government, Worker and Employer Organisations and the ILO symbolising, the sustainability of tripartism.

The 70-metre illustration portrays a montage of activities representing various sectors in Viet Nam such as industry, agriculture, handicrafts and aquaculture.

The colourful ceramic pictures also depict the main actors in the labour market – government, workers and employers – highlighting the co-operation, social dialogue and a promising future for decent work in Viet Nam.

Hoang Manh Hien, vice chairman of the Ha Noi People's Committee, received the contribution from the tripartite constituents and the ILO.

Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan, Minister of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, said: "The mural is a symbol of the fruitful co-operation between the tripartite constituents and the ILO to promote decent work and social justice for all in Viet Nam. It is also a valuable contribution form social partners and the ILO for Ha Noi to celebrate its 1,000-year anniversary".

Sachiko Yamamoto, Regional Director of ILO Office for Asia and the Pacific, said: "Your creative design reflects all types of work places in Viet Nam; it puts the people and their work in the centre; it emphasises the strength of tripartite collaboration. This mural – I hope – will symbolise for generations to come the importance of Tripartism and Decent Work for All in Viet Nam. May it be an inspiration for the continued tripartite unity in social and economic development for the next 1,000 years". — VNS
