Vietnamese Encouraged to Work Overseas

VNS Oct. 3--The Government hopes to encourage Vietnamese citizens find employment abroad with a decree that aims at improving working conditions and making the licensing process of manpower agencies easier.

This was revealed at a workshop organised here on Friday to explain the salient features of the decree.

Organised by the Ministry of Labour, War Invalids and Social Affairs, the workshop highlighted the export of Vietnamese labour as a socio-economic activity that improved the quality of the nations' workforce, promoted international integration and made valuable contribution to the State budget.

Participants were told that the Government decree dealt with Vietnamese workers in foreign countries on limited time contracts.

The decree aims to make the licensing process easier for Vietnamese manpower agencies and encourage individuals to find employment in foreign countries in compliance with Vietnamese and international laws.
