Socio- Economic Characteristics of Hanoi Compared with the whole country, Hanoi is always one of the locals having the highest rate of economic growth. Hanoi's population continues to grow constantly. The structure of the rural labor shifts towards reducing the proportion of agricultural labor. 16 In the years of innovation, Hanoi has strongly promoted economic development to ensure social justice.

OVERALL ASSESSMENT OF EMPLOYMENT FOR FARMERS ON LAND RECOVERY IN HANOI RECENTLY 3.3.1. The results of job creation for farmers on land recovery in Hanoi With much effort and various measures of the Party Committee, the City government, local businesses and the workers themselves, in the recent years Hanoi has created a lot of achievements in the field of job creation for labor in general and for farmers in particular after the land recovery. This fact shows: - Hanoi has attracted a significant number of local employees to work in the industrial parks and clusters - The city has several policies, programs and projects in order to create various favorable conditions and opportunities for farmers whose land is acquired to find a new job 18 - Vocational training activities in the City has gained certain achievements contributing to help labor find jobs. 3.3.2. The limitations, weaknesses and cause of limitations in creating jobs for farmers on land recovery in Hanoi Firstly, the number of people whose land is recovered attracted to work in the businesses, industrial parks accounts for a very low percentage compared to the total number of employees losing their jobs. Secondly, unemployment, underemployment remains high percentage. Thirdly, the number of farmers switching to new industries is low; the quality, stability and sustainability of jobs for farmers after land recovery is not high Fourthly, labor export results is low (only accounted for 2% of the total labor getting jobs annually). Fifthly, the operation of the employment service centers are not really effective. Sixthly, policies and implementation of the State and the City policies in job creation for farmers on land recovery is asynchronous and not radical. Seventhly, the organization of vocational training for farmers on land recovery is not studied thoroughly, leading to trained occupation is not appropriate with the needs of the labor market, so, even though employees have been trained, they cannot find a job. 19 Eighthly, businesses using recovered agricultural land haven’t implemented well their commitment of giving priority to local labor with land recovered on recruitment. Ninethly, the preparation of the locals and people in job creation after land recovery is not really synchronous, making it difficult for people, especially rural people to stabilize their lives. Chapter 4 DIRECTION AND EMPLOYMENT SOLUTIONS FOR FARMERS ON LAND RECOVERY IN HANOI 4.1. FORECAST FOR LAND RECOVERY AND VIEWPOINTS ON JOB CREATION FOR FARMERS IN HANOI ON AGRICULTURAL LAND RECOVERY 4.1.1. Forecast of land recovery and employment needs of farmers on the recovery of land in Hanoi by 2020 According to the land use planning of Hanoi by 2020, the land use plan in the period 2010-2015, in the period from 2010 to 2015 the area of agricultural land will decrease by 11.6 thousand hectares to switch to the non-agricultural purposes, and will continue to decline 25,218.9 hectares in 2020, reducing the area of agricultural land in Hanoi down to 151,779.9 hectares only. Thus, in the coming years, the agricultural land area in Hanoi will decrease over 36,000 ha. Based on calculations of the Ministry of Labour - Invalids and Social Welfare once each hectare of agricultural land is revoked, 13 people will lose their jobs. This means in the coming time in Hanoi approximately 468,000 farmers will lose their jobs due to land recovery. This will greatly impact the balance of jobs supply -
