More than 14,900 Myanmar workers officially accepted overseas jobs in eight countries last month, according to figures released by the Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population.
In April, 12,484 workers of the 14,985 went to Thailand, while 1,381 others were legally sent to Malaysia, followed by 759 to the Republic of Korea, 285 to Japan, 30 to Singapore, another 30 to Jordan, nine to Qatar and seven to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
During the same period, some 15,550 local job-seekers took up domestic jobs in states and regions, including in remote areas. Yangon topped the chart with more than 10,000 new employees, followed by the Bago Region with 1,317, Mandalay Region with 896 and the Sagaing Region with 700.
The remaining regions and states experienced an influx of fewer than 700 new employees.
The ministry has made concerted efforts to create more employment opportunities for both domestic and overseas job hunters through the labour exchange management system.
