GIA LAI (VNS)— Just over 1,000 guest workers have been sent to the Republic of Korea from the five Central Highlands provinces of Gia Lai, Kon Tum, Dak Lak, Dak Nong and Lam Dong since 2004.
Many local workers from the region are said to encounter various difficulties in finance and foreign language training before being sent abroad. Recently, only 24.5 per cent of trainees passed a Korean language exam.
In 2011, Lam Dong became the region's first locality to implement policy that supports Korean training to increase the quality of its labour force. — VNS
