State employees to get higher base salary next month

Thuy Dung

HANOI – The monthly base salary for public employees will increase to VND1.3 million (US$57.35) from the current VND1.21 million from July 1.

State employees will enjoy a 7% pay raise as stipulated in Decree 47 on statutory pay for public officials, public employees and armed forces.

The new base salary is used as a basis for calculating wages and allowances for State officials, employees at State agencies and members of armed forces.

At an international seminar on wage held by the Ministry of Home Affairs last year, Dang Nhu Loi, former vice chairman of the Committee for Social Affairs of the National Assembly, said that unlike enterprises, the salary structure at State agencies is extremely complex.

Actually, enterprises offer allowances for employees based on regional minimum wages. There are different minimum wages at enterprises operating in four different regions in which the lowest rate is VND3.75 million a month. Meanwhile, wages of civil servants and State officials are calculated based on base wages.
