These enterprises will accompany and cooperate with the province comprehensively through the signing a long-term cooperation programme.

The programme will be implemented in 2023.

In the first three months of this year, the Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs introduced 10 licensed enterprises to the districts and Hoa Binh city to recruit labourers to work under contracts in Japan, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, and Russia.
