The southern province of Dong Nai has announced that so far this year it has created more than 92,000 jobs, 102 percent of the set target.

According to the provincial Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, this is a result of efforts to improve access to loans for locals and to provide further vocational training and employment to labourers.

Additionally, poverty reduction work was included in many other programmes, which proved its efficiency by lowering the proportion of poor households to 2 percent, it said.

Nearly 76 percent of local labourers resumed their jobs, the department added.

However, due to difficulties in student enrolment, the province has seen a 6.5 percent decrease in vocational training outcomes while facing an employment imbalance, the department said.-VNA
