In January-September, the total number of Vietnamese employees working abroad was 104,615, including 35,815 female workers, reaching 87.2 percent of the yearly target.

Japan received the largest number of Vietnamese workers with 53,610, including 20,250 females, followed by China’s Taiwan 41,174, the Republic of Korea 5,898, Romania 1,103, Saudi Arabia 817, Macau 324, and Malaysia 304.

Deputy head of the Department of Overseas Labour Nguyen Gia Liem said Taiwan and Japan are traditional labour export markets of Vietnam.

Japan is the most potential at present thanks to good wages and numerous opportunities for skilled workers, he added.

In 2018, close to 70,000 Vietnamese workers went to work in Japan. Currently, nearly 200,000 are working in the East Asian country.

Japan has demands for over 345,000 foreign workers in various fields such as caregiving for the elderly, hotel reception, electricity, car repair and maintenance, aviation logistics, restaurant, construction, shipbuilding and agriculture.
