The agreement was signed on the occasion of Vietnamese Minister of MOLISA Dao Ngoc Dung’s working visit to Bulgaria. 

The agreement is based on the cooperative commitments between the two Governments on sending Vietnamese workers to Bulgaria. 

Accordingly, all sides acknowledged the joint concerns to establish the positive and long-term cooperative relations in labor and social policy. 

Cooperative areas include labor law, activities related to active employment policies for disadvantaged groups in the labor market, retraining for employed and unemployed people, social support and social assistance for vulnerable groups, prevention of illegal employment and integrative policies for people with disabilities and measures to ensure the environment for people with disabilities to access good employment. 

Other areas referred in the agreement consist of anti-discrimination and gender equality, occupational safety and health, migrant workers, income policy and measures to combat poverty and social exclusion, development of social security and retirement systems and other areas. 

In 2018, 37 Vietnamese laborers were licensed to work in Bulgaria. Viet Nam may provide 50,000 laborers for Bulgaria in six areas including construction, garments, high-tech agriculture and nursing. 

The cooperative agreement is expected to pave the way for further cooperation in labor, consisting of labor export and vocational training. 

In 2017, 135,000 Vietnamese workers were sent abroad, the highest figure recorded. 

In 2018, the MOLISA set the goal to send 110,000 workers overseas, heading to ink agreements on labor cooperation with such new markets as Israel, Kuwait, Rumania and Bulgaria.
