By M.ZOLJARGAL

 

The Ministry of Labor last week released a report on labor statistics, which says that over 12,000 workers from 103 countries are currently employed in Mongolia.

As the warm season approaches, construction work is resuming. The number of foreigners working in Mongolia is expected to rise as the construction season intensifies.

Around half of the foreigners working in Mongolia are Chinese, with about 5,900 Chinese workers registered. Over 4,000 of these workers are employed in the construction sector, while another 800 are here for road, transportation and storage related projects.

Around 1,749 of the foreign workers are from North Korea, 528 are from Russia, 428 are from the United States, 414 are from Vietnam, and 355 are from Australia.
