From the beginning of the year, more than 503 locals sought an overseas job mostly in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan (China)
The province has taken the lead in labor export in the Mekong delta region. Through study, Dong Thap residents working in the field of food making, agriculture, mechanics, automobile technology, construction have good income of around VND28-35 million monthly a person; these persons have sent money home to support their family; accordingly many households have escaped poverty.
Moreover, Japanese enterprises are favor of laborers from Dong Thap because Vietnamese workers are industrious, and well skillful. Japanese enterprises receive over 200 laborers in Dong Thap monthly.
Director of the province’s employment service center Nguyen Thi Minh Tuyet said the province authority defined labor export as a key mission, aiming to develop the economy and improve the quality of life. In reality, the province yields fruitful results.
However, lately, some locals have been ripped off by bad men who swindled their money; therefore, related agencies warned people to register in the government’s employment service center not to listen to anyone.
Dong Thap People’s Committee assigned the employment service center to provide vocational training courses and send laborers abroad.
