83 percent of laborers leave central region to seek work

More than 83 percent of laborers in the central region move to work in other provinces and foreign countries because of a reduction of jobs in local agricultural areas, heard a conference November 21 in Quang Tri Province's Dong Ha City.

Reasons for migration included limited support policies regarding capital and technology, along with recent natural disasters which left many people homeless.

According to the latest research, of the 83 percent of laborers, 46 percent are farmers and 23 percent are students who drop out of school.

The Hanoi University of Social Sciences and Humanities held the conference on central region migration patterns, with the Hue University of Sciences in association with the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation.
