Labour exports relatively unchanged

VOV.VN - Vietnam’s labour exports dipped only marginally by 0.48% year-on-year to 8,627 workers for the month of January, reports the Overseas Labour Management Department (OLMD).

Taiwan (China) remained the top export market at 5,362 workers, trailed by Japan (2,019), Malaysia (530), Saudi Arabia (129), the Republic of Korea (RoK) (68) and Macao (32).

Based on the number of agreements signed by the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA) in 2015, labour exports are expected to surge in 2016, particularly in the RoK, Thailand and Malaysia, says the OLMD.

MoLISA also signed cooperative deals to send orderlies to Japan and Germany, which offers a chance to increase the number of qualified guest workers to the German market by 500-700 annually.

In addition, Taiwan (China) removed a ban on Vietnamese fishermen and eased restrictions for Vietnamese caregivers and domestic maids as of July 2015 that bodes well for labour exports this year.
