More guest workers to Malaysia

Malaysia continues to receive Vietnamese guest workers who have been granted calling visas, said Nguyen Thanh Hoa, head of the Overseas Labor Management Department, in an interview with Thoi Bao Kinh Te (Vietnam Economic Times). He said Vietnam has sent nearly 90,000 workers to Malaysia since April 2002, and plans to send 70,000 this year. Malaysia ranks second behind Taiwan in numbers of Vietnamese guest workers. Their monthly income ranges from $170-220, while those who work for foreign construction joint ventures can earn as much as $280 per month. (Voice of Vietnam Feb. 17).
