HCM City may welcome educated workers
HCM CITY — HCM City should allow educated people from other parts of the country to work and live here, a senior city official has said.
Colonel Ngo Minh Chau, deputy director of the police department, told a National Assembly mission here for studying enforcement of the Residence Law on May 6 that it is normal for well-developed urban areas like HCM City to be a magnet for outsiders.
He suggested that city authorities should allow people with a bachelor's degree, house, or permanent job here to register for permanent residency before the stipulated 12 months of temporary residence required under the law.
In fact, they should be encouraged to register for a permanent residency even without any temporary residency, he added.
