VietNamNet Bridge - Vietnam has up to 15% of the population who are the people with disabilities and they do not have stable jobs and income.
The International Labor Organization (ILO) said that Vietnam loses 3% of the gross domestic product (GDP) each year because the labor market is not open for the disable.
This figure was released yesterday (3/12), on the occasion of the International Day of People with Disabilities.
To assist the disable in Vietnam, the ILO is working with the Irish Aid to promote employment for this group of vulnerable workers, through a $250,000 project, which is carried out in 2012-2013.
Ms. Barbara Muray, a leading expert on disability, said all barriers to the people with disabilities need to be removed because this benefits the community and society.
In Vietnam, very few people with disabilities have stable job and income. Many people still have to do informal jobs, Ms. Muray said.
