61,000 workers exported this year

Vietnam has exported 61,000 workers abroad during the Jan.-Nov. period, most of them going to Taiwan, which received 36,000 Vietnamese; followed by Malaysia with 14,000 workers, South Korea with 4,200 and Japan with 2,000. Overall it is a sharp drop from last year, when 74,000 workers were exported during the same period, but the government hopes to reach 65,000 workers by the end of the year. These figures come from Vietnam's Overseas Labor Management Department under the Ministry of Labor, War Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA).(Vietnam Economic Times Dec 4 p1, Investment Dec 3 p2, Laborer Dec 2 p11, VNS Dec 1, Vietnam News Briefs, Dec. 3).
