Vietnam sent more than 66,900 labourers to work abroad during January-June, accounting for 55 percent of the yearly plan.

According to experts, good prospect to the labour market in the second half as various bilateral agreements, which have been already inked, are expected to open more opportunities for Vietnamese workers, thus making fulfillment of the target of sending 120,000 guest workers abroad this year possible.

Notably, Vietnamese students and workers will have more chances to study and work in Japan following an agreement on specific skilled workers programme between the two countries which was made during Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s visit to Japan in June.

To take full advantage of the deals, localities and competent sectors should pay attention to improving capacity for the workers so that they are qualified to work abroad.-VNA
