Czech Republic Recruiting Labour in Vietnam

From Vietnam Net:

Vietnam hopes to export labourers to Czech Republic

The Czech Republic is a potential market for Vietnamese labour export as its booming economy ignites the need for skilled workers, the head of the Department for Labour Export, Nguyen Ngoc Quynh, said.

According to Quynh, Vietnam can also take advantage of the Czech Republic’s open policy on labour import setting no quota on the number of workers.

Quynh said some 10 businesses would be selected based on strict criteria for exporting labourers to central European country. His department will work with eligible businesses on the recruitment and training or workers and discuss granting visas to Vietnamese labourers with Czech authorities.

Since 2006, several Vietnamese businesses have sent around 200 labourers to the Czech Republic on trial runs. Labourers enjoy good working and living conditions with incomes ranging from 600-700 USD per month, Quynh said.
