From 2011 - 2019, Long An has 1,214 people participating in labor export in countries such as Japan, Korea, etc. This number is very small compared to the potential of the province, meanwhile, people has demand for labor export is very large, the market for labor export is diversified. The reason is that the qualification and skills of foreign workers are still low, failing to meet the labor market with high requirements; levels and sectors have not paid attention to labor export; propaganda and dissemination of labor export laws are limited, etc. Moreover, the province has no policy to support and encourage workers to participate in labor export.

Stemming from the above cause, the development and implementation of the project of labor export in Long An province in the period 2020 - 2025 is very necessary, in order to support funding for people in need of labor export, contributing to increase income and improve quality of life, creating a skilled labor force. The objective of the project, from 2021 - 2025, every year, the province strives to bring 1,000 workers or more to participate in labor export. Particularly in 2020, the province will bring 500 people to labor export.
