HÀ NỘI – Hundreds of Vietnamese guest workers across the Republic of Korea (RoK) gathered on Saturday at a festival for foreign workers in Ansan city, Gyeonggi province, about 40km from Seoul. 

The event, jointly held by the RoK Ministry of Labour and Employment and the Human Resources Development Service, drew about 3,000 guest workers from 16 different countries. 

It aimed to strengthen mutual understanding among foreign workers in the RoK, while creating a chance for the local government to support them in different matters, including legal, insurance, banking and health care issues. 

Addressing the event, a representative from the local authorities lauded contributions of foreign labourers to the growth of the RoK, expressing hope that the skills and experience they gained during their stay in the country will help develop their careers in their homelands. 

The Vietnamese booth at the event introduced the nation’s culture and beautiful landscapes and highlighted the country’s recent development achievements. 

Currently, about 50,000 Vietnamese are working in the RoK. They are the second-largest foreign community only after those from China. — VNS
