Accordingly, each returnee will receive VND1 million in cash sourced from the city’s budget.

The Viet Nam Bank for Social Policies will reschedule loans borrowed by workers for trips to Libya to 24 months.

Meanwhile, the municipal Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs has proposed loans worth a maximum of VND20 million to those who want to be self-employed.

It will also support vocational training fees for the former guest workers who wish to learn a new occupation and advise them to seek new jobs at employment service centres and job fairs in the city.

Ha Noi has 179 guest workers leaving Libya ahead of schedule.

The country’s evacuation of its 1,750 guest workers from war-torn Libya has almost completed with 1,379 already back home by August 17 and all those working in strife-hit Tripoli and Bengazhi cities moved to safer areas.-VNA
