At the event, Vietnamese Ambassador to the Czech Republic Ho Minh Tuan said that labour cooperation deal between the two countries has expired since 2008 and is yet to be re-signed. The exchange of experts between the two countries is not to be carried out yet.
Most of the Vietnamese workers go to the Czech Republic through a brokerage company with high fees, Tuan noted, adding that contracts signed between the European country’s localities and more than 260 licensed enterprises in Vietnam are necessary in the coming time.
He also laid stress on the need for both sides to take measures and make efforts to concretise the cooperation agreements.
In a talk with a Prague-based Vietnam News Agency correspondent, Josef Janu, an official from Karlovy Vary, said that most of the employment vacancies are in healthcare, tourism resort and handicraft production sectors, hence, skilled workers from Vietnam are welcomed.
