Recently, Vietnamese Minister of Labor, War-Invalids and Social Affairs Dao Ngoc Dung and Romanian Minister of Labor and Social Justice Marius Constatin Budai signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on labour and social welfare cooperation which will last five years.

Under the MoU, the two sides commit to expand bilateral cooperation in labour, employment and social welfare for joint benefit.

According to the Vietnamese Minister, Romania is a potential market for Vietnamese as it has great demand for laborers in industries and income suitable for them.

“The Vietnamese Ministry will urge the Overseas Labor Management Department to instruct labor export businesses to select skilled ones for sending to Romania,” said Mr. Dung. “Romania has high demand for labourers working in welding, construction, production and processing of agricultural products.”

Vietnamese laborers in Romania will enjoy good working environment and salary of USD600-1,200 per month.

Around 100 Vietnamese guest laborers were sent to Romania each year between 2008 and 2016. The figure rose from 800 in 2017 to 1,400 during the eleven months of 2018./.
