Vietnam and South Korea signed an administrative deal on the implementation of a bilateral agreement on social insurance in the latter’s Sejong city on December 8, according to the Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs.

The bilateral agreement was signed between Minister of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs Dao Ngoc Dung and South Korean Minister of Health and Welfare Kwon Deok Cheol on December 14, 2021, in Seoul.
