Vietnam aims to expand foreign labour markets in the post-pandemic period

Update: 20:25 | 09/07/2022

Over the past two years, the Covid-19 pandemic has seriously affected Vietnam’s labour export as most countries and territories have closed their doors or restricted the acceptance of foreign workers.

In 2020 Vietnam sent only 78,600 workers abroad, equivalent to 60% of the target, while the figure for 2021 was only half the target at 45,000 workers.

Vietnam aims to send 90,000 workers abroad in 2022.

This year, the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) aims to dispatch 90,000 workers abroad. Most countries have now introduced policy changes to promote economic recovery by ramping up production and business, which is expected to lead to rising demand for workers. It is an opportunity for Vietnam to step up the task of sending workers to foreign labour markets.

Since the early months of the year, besides reopening traditional markets such as the Republic of Korea, Taiwan (China) and Japan, many cooperation activities have been implemented to promote the dispatch of Vietnamese workers to high-income labour markets. MOLISA worked to sign agreements on labour cooperation with Germany, Russia and Israel as well as other European markets.

It is estimated that Vietnam had sent nearly 52,000 workers abroad as of mid-June 2022, equivalent to 57.4% of the full-year target.

Commenting on the labour export orientation in the final six months, a representative of the Department of Overseas Labour (DOLAB) said quality should be given top priority. Therefore, besides expanding new markets, it is necessary to enhance the quality of workers being sent abroad.

DOLAB is now focusing on strengthening the connection between service companies and vocational schools in preparing and training high-quality workers in terms of foreign language, professional skills and discipline. It will also step up efforts to enhance public awareness to prevent fraud and violations in this sector.
