South Korea wants more Mongolian workers


Paying a working visit to South Korea, Minister of Labor S.Chinzorig met with Minister of Employment and Labor Lee Ki-Kweon to discuss the expansion of cooperation in the labor sector, where the Korean side requested increasing the number of Mongolian employees being sent to South Korea.
Beginning the meeting, Minister Chinzorig introduced government measures being taken in the labor sector.
The sides renewed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on the management of labor export to South Korea, last Tuesday. Amendments were made to the memorandum in 2008, 2011 and 2013. The latest amendment to the MoU facilitates certifying the Mongolian workforce’s skills and specializations obtained in South Korea, and providing them with opportunities to utilize their skills back home by opening small and medium-sized businesses.
Minister Chinzorig and Minister Lee exchanged views on developing the two countries’ labor cooperation and reported on the measures taken by the Mongolian government on labor.
As of June 20, a total of 8,193 Mongolian citizens are now working in South Korea with labor contracts, and 713 people have left to work in South Korea since the beginning of the new year.
