Viet Nam News NHA TRANG— Social security mechanism and regulations will have to be changed since the fourth industrial revolution and free movement of labour have led to new kinds of jobs and ways of working, Deputy Prime Minister Vũ Đức Đam has said. Speaking at the two-day 35th ASEAN Social Security Association (ASSA) Board Meeting that opened on Tuesday in Khánh Hòa Province’s Nha Trang City, he said employment has become less stable because more and more people do seasonal and short-term jobs.

The sun was strong even though summer was yet to come. The flow of traffic came to a sudden stop at the red light, and continued rushing on even before the light turned green. The traffic was so hectic that the clouds of dust had no space to settle down on the dirt road. It was so hot that the air-conditioned ice cream parlour was packed with patrons. Yet on the other side of the road there was a completely different environment.
