In September, 12,950 workers were sent abroad, equivalent to 80% of the same period last year. 

Vietnamese guest workers now bring home US$ 2.5-3 million of remittances every year.  

Labor export helped to alleviate the burden of creating jobs for the country’s young and dense population and provided employment for approximately 10% of the labor force./.
