Labor reform for Vietnamese

14/01/2016
In recent years, many articles concerning labor export have published many articles entitled: “Go to get out of poverty”, “Farmers quit poverty through labor export”, “Export labor makes poverty alleviation”... There are many articles to recount that Vietnamese undertake the work which the West consider “green collar” (manual labor), or "3D" (dirty, dangerous, demeaning). And there is one more fact that journalism little mention of labor flows of Vietnam remains one-way, not a reversal like other Asian countries. After a short time to export labor, South Korea, Thailand... became labor importing countries. Specifically, in the 70s of last century, Thailand started exporting labor, mainly men, to work in the construction industry in the Middle East. Two decades later, due to rapid economic development, Thailand stopped exporting to import labor. With the Korean case in relation to Vietnam, the number of expatriates living in each country is equivalent - about 140,000 people (according to the Korean Embassy in Vietnam). But here there is a big difference in labor - most Koreans to Vietnam is investors.
As for the foreign language skill of many workers in Vietnam, just observe them at foreign airports we can see clearly that they can not understand anything. Meanwhile, many school teachers and university lecturers have failed the exams to get European standards certification in English. The results of survey on English teaching capacity of teachers in many local shows that nearly 10% of them reach the standards.
However, there is a good signal in the field of labor is that agencies and units in Vietnam have begun utilizing employment opportunities that the ASEAN Economic Community provides. Skilled labors in eight industries can freely move within the community. Vietnam is promoting the international integration of education and vocational training, perfecting mechanisms, policies and involved planning, for example to apply  national qualifications framework according to the reference framework of ASEAN and to develop credit transfer system, improve the quality of training in eight career fields, foreign languages...

We hope that in the very near future, the majority of Vietnamese workers in other countries will be “white collar” to work as the boss, direct in English - the language of the natives and proudly say “I am Vietnamese”.
