Over 88,000 labourers sent to work abroad

Despite a lot of difficulties, over 88,200 labourers were sent to work abroad in 2011, exceeding the target of 87,000 labourers in labour export set by the National Assembly, said Nguyen Ngoc Quynh, Head of the Overseas Labourers Management Department during a meeting with the press on January 3.

According to Mr. Quynh, among the exported labourers, nearly 32,000 are female.

In 2012, the Ministry of Labour, War-Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) plans to send 90,000 labourers overseas, with an increase in labourers from 62 poor districts of the country.

Apart from traditional markets such as Malaysia, the Republic of Korea, Japan and Taiwan, MOLISA encourages enterprises to open new markets that provide high incomes for skilled labourers./.
