15:53 | 16/09/2009

VGP – The Ministry of Labor, War Invalids and Social Affairs and the Ministry of Finance just introduced instructions to realize the Plan "Supporting poor districts to boost labor export for sustainable poverty reduction in the period 2009-2020."

Guest laborers are trained in foreign languages

Laborers residing in poor districts permanently or for 12 legally-recognized months are financed to afford expenses for going to work in other countries.

Those who complete primary education or higher levels and need more academic knowledge will be fully granted with tuition fees, textbooks, living costs, belongings (cloths, uniforms, blankets, mosquito-nets), and commuter fees.

Laborers from poor households and ethnic minority groups are fully financed to afford vocational training, foreign language study, subsistence expenses, traveling costs and other costs for the completion of immigration procedures.

To reduce unexpected damages, guest workers who must repatriate after working not more than 12 months in other countries are given with money to pay for their one-way air ticket if: (i) their health conditions are unsuitable to their work; (ii) they are laid off when employers face business difficulties; and (iii) their labor contracts are unilaterally terminated by employers.

Laborers from poor households and ethnic minority groups can take preferential credit loans at the interest rate 50% lower than the current rate applied by the Bank of Social Policies for guest workers who are beneficiaries of social policies.

Vocational training establishments for guest workers are provided with preferential capital of the Bank for Development of Việt Nam to upgrade their classrooms, hostels, and teaching facilities.

The total sum for the Plan is VND 4,715 billion, including VND 1,542 billion for laborers and VND 3,173 billion as preferential credits.
