At the conference
Accordingly, in the period of 2018 - 2020, Long An plans to send 1,000 local laborers abroad and 1,000 laborers will be sent abroad annually starting 2021 to 2025.
The move is under a scheme to export labor abroad signed by local authorities, aiming to tackle local unemployment. It is to reduce poverty, provide more job opportunities, contribute to socio-economic development and to allow the unemployed to earn more stable income as well as to develop an awareness of complying with workplace regulations.
In the period of 2011-2017, the province sent more than 600 laborers abroad. However, labor export has so far faced many difficulties resulting that the number of local laborers working abroad has remained still low, said the Deputy Director of Department of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs - Hoa Thanh Nien./.
