HA NOI (VNS) — Nearly 7,500 Vietnamese workers, including 2,900 women, were employed abroad in October alone, nearly fulfilling the entire year's target for Vietnamese guest workers abroad.

Statistics from the Department of Overseas Labour show that Taiwan still ranked as the largest market for Vietnamese labourers in October with 4,381 workers. It was followed by Japan, Malaysia, Laos and Cambodia.

470 Vietnamese workers, who had returned to Viet Nam after completing their labour contracts in South Korea, were also invited to return to work in South Korea again.

So far, more than 70,200 Vietnamese workers have been employed abroad in the first 10 months of the year. The country's target is to send 80,000 workers abroad this year.— VNS
