In the past 11 months, the VSS has worked closely with the relevant ministries and sectors to formulate and revise laws and documents concerning the implementation of social and health insurance policies.

The VSS has also been making efforts to reform administrative procedures and adopt digital transformation in its operations.

In the next year, the VSS will continue working to simplify administrative procedures to make them more convenient for enterprises and the people.
