Concerned agencies and companies have exerted joint efforts to help Vietnamese workers return to the normal life after 1,015 Vietnamese workers on board a Greece-flagged vessel from Libya arrived at the Cai Lan Port, Quang Ninh province on April 4.

Two businesses that sent workers to Libya, namely the Vinaconex Trade & Manpower Export Centre (Vinaconexmec) and the Viet Thang Company, arranged 30 buses to transport repatriated workers to their homes, mainly in the central provinces of Nghe An and Ha Tinh.

In addition, the two companies provided 1 million VND in support for each worker.

Vu Viet Hai, a representative of the Viet Thang Company, said his company is seeking labour markets in and out of the country to help the returnees continue working instead of liquidating contracts with them.

The Ministry of Labour, War Invalids and Social Affairs has issued an official document asking province and city authorities to provide assistance to the returnees, and encourage businesses to recruit the workers.

Dang Huy Hau, Vice Chairman of the Quang Ninh province People’s Committee, stressed the province’s top priority is to create favourable conditions for the Vietnamese workers back from Libya to find jobs.

The province provided 3 million VND in support to each worker right after they returned to their home in Quang Ninh.

The northern province of Ninh Binh has taken measures to support the workers, including cash support of 3 million VND for each labourer.

Ninh Binh province has 231 labourers returning from Libya.

The Vietnamese labourers returning by sea were the last Vietnamese workers to go home in the Vietnamese government’s largest-ever campaign to rescue 10,300 workers from chaotic Libya. /.
