The above figure includes 19,000 female workers, said the ministry.

During the reviewed period, Japan was the largest manpower importer of Viet Nam with 35,208, followed by Taiwan 21,602, and South Korea 5,209.

In March this year, Deputy Minister of MOLISA Nguyen Ba Hoan and Australian Ambassador to Viet Nam Andrew Goledzinowski signed a plan to implement the Memorandum of Understanding between the two Governments to support Vietnamese citizens to work in the agricultural industry in Australia.

Under the MoU, the two sides will support 1,000 Vietnamese workers to work in the agricultural industry in Australia under the Pacific Australia Labour Mobility (PALM) scheme, beginning this year.

On June 12, the MOLISA held a signing ceremony between the Center for Overseas Labor and the Osaka Medical Care Association (Japan) regarding a technical intern supply contract for the care worker profession in Japan.

Viet Nam aims to send 125,000 contract workers in 2024, mostly to key traditional markets such as Japan, Taiwan and South Korea. Specifically, the nation will send about 63,000 workers to Japan. It also expects to send about 48,000 workers to Chinese Taipei and 8,500 to South Korea.

In 2023, the Southeast Asian nation sent more than 159,000 contract workers abroad, reaching 133 percent of the yearly plan, a 10-year high. Key traditional markets continued to receive a large number of Vietnamese workers, with Japan receiving more than 80,000, Taiwan more than 58,000, and South Korea 11,000 workers./.
