Time: 9:00am - 5:00pm

Venue: Sheraton Hotel Saigon, HCMC


The International Organisation for Migration and the British Embassy in Vietnam have the pleasure of hosting this workshop with the support of the Swedish Embassy in Vietnam.

Why is the workshop important for your company?

Companies are now under pressure to demonstrate that the goods and services they produce are free from human trafficking, modern slavery and exploitation. Ethical recruitment and sustainable labour supply chain practices will further the inclusion of Vietnamese companies into the transnational production network of multinational companies, and are a pathway to a sustainable national competitiveness.

The workshop aims to provide attendees with practical means to develop strategies on how to meet multinational companies’ due diligence requirements and sharpen competitive edges to access global markets.
