The northern province of Nam Dinh will need 6,500 more labourers to work in its industrial zones (IZs) in 2014, mainly in the fields of garment and textile and fabric dyeing.

Nguyen Huu Trong, deputy head of the provincial management board of industrial zones, said that despite economic difficulties, businesses operating in IZs still receive a lot of orders.

However, many of them have faced a shortage of employees since 2013, he added.

There are 127 enterprises operating in three IZs in Nam Dinh, creating jobs for 25,000 people with an average monthly salary of 3.8 million VND (178 USD) per person.-VNA
