Central Highlands localities targets 113,000 new jobs in 2020

Central Highlands localities are striving to generate jobs for over 113,000 labourers each year from now to 2020, thus increasing income of locals and contributing to sustainable poverty reduction in the region.

According to the Steering Committee for Central Highlands Region, the five provinces of DakLak, Gia Lai, Kon Tum, DakNong and Lam Dong, have issued mechanisms and policies to encourage investors to establish new firms in the localities. As a result, 2,686 enterprises were established in the region last year, a rise of 14.22 percent over the previous year, employing thousands of labourers.

Over 160 vocational training facilities in the region have cooperated with local authorities to train labourers from rural areas, especially those from ethnic minority groups.
