MoLISA Minister Doan Mau Diep said on July 5 that the ministry would help fishermen grasp opportunities to work in Japan, the Republic of Korea, Taiwan, Germany and Thailand with lower expenses, or at factories in Vietnam and support them in fishing offshore.
The ministry will submit to the Government a proposal for exempting and reducing training fees for these labourers.
The career shifting program will be implemented until seas in central region become normal and fishermen can resume their normal lives, Mr Diep said.
The MoLISA estimated that around 263,000 working people, including 100,000 fishermen, in four central provinces were affected by mass fish deaths.
The mass fish deaths along beaches in four provinces in early April, which caused by poison in untreated wastewater from Hung Nghiep Formosa Ha Tinh Steel Limited Company, seriously disturbed the fishing activities of locals.
