During the meeting, Hoan affirmed that the Vietnamese Government cares and introduces preferential policies to support its citizens in working abroad under labour contracts.

Currently, Vietnamese workers are being accepted by many European countries such as Germany, Romania, the Czech Republic, and Bulgaria to work as technical workers, nurses, and orderlies.

“For the Hungarian market, we support businesses in expanding and signing contracts with their partners to send workers to Hungary,” said Hoan.

Up to now, 16 Vietnamese enterprises have been licensed to send Vietnamese labourers to work in Hungary. Nearly 1,100 out of more than 2,500 applicants have left for work in the Central European nation in the fields of agriculture, food processing, and construction. They all have good incomes and enjoy social welfare regimes in their host country.

To increase the number of Vietnamese people going to work in Hungary, Deputy Minister Nguyen Ba Hoan said his ministry has asked its Department of Overseas Labour Management to direct licensed enterprises to ensure the recruitment and training of workers before leaving the country.

He also revealed that Vietnam and Hungary are now working on a labour cooperation agreement to be signed in the near future.

Juhas Csongor, general director of Prohuman, noted Hungary is experiencing a period of population aging and it therefore desires to receive skilled foreign workers, especially in the fields of agriculture and industry.

Currently, Hungary has agreed to quickly issue foreign worker visas to nine countries and Vietnam is at the top of the list, he informed.

He praised Vietnamese workers for their hard work and rule obedience, and hoped more Vietnamese workers would be accepted in Hungary in future.

Prohuman is one of the reputable human resource recruitment agencies in Hungary, which is seeking to receive a large number of Vietnamese workers to come and work in the country. Every year, Prohuman receives and manages about 24,000 employees throughout Central Europe.
