For the time being, the Minister of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) has decided to give US$150 to each worker when they arrived at the Airport Noi Bai in Ha Noi, later on, local departments of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs will help them find jobs, said Mr.Toan.
Relating to the government’s policy of labor export to the Middle East in the future, Mr. Toan said that the government will find safe places for laborers, not send laborers to the countries where migrant workers are banned or where there is war zone.
"The government support fully laborers to find jobs in foreign countries, even in Middle East"- he said -" However, the laborers need to register their labor contracts with the local departments of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs for management and support purpose and for their timely protection if necessary".
According to Mr Toan, the Middle East, which is a very big area with a great number of nations, has a great demand for migrant workers. It is considered a potential manpower export market for Viet Nam, but safety and working conditions, as well as living standard should also be taken into consideration, according to the MOLISA. In the future, the Middle East will still be a primary market for Viet Nam’s manpower export.
