Southeast Asian countries hosted 496 Vietnamese laborers in the nine-month period, down 46.7 percent on-year. Malaysia received 61.3 percent of the Vietnamese workers to the region, down 63 percent, said the association.

While Vietnam continued sending most of its workers to main labour markets in East Asia, Middle East and Malaysia, the government is looking to expand its pool of receiving countries to such well-paid ones as Australia, the United States, Canada and Finland, according to the country’s Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs.

Market expansion was in line with an increase of occupations, including many opting to work in the health sector as nurses and auxiliary staff, besides other high-skill sectors. China’s Taiwan and Japan will remain the most attractive destinations for Vietnamese workers in the coming months of this year, forecast the ministry’s Department of Overseas Labor.

Over 500,000 Vietnamese people are working as guest workers in more than 40 countries, annually remitting home 2 to 2.5 billion U.S. dollars, according to the ministry.
