The Ministry of Labour, Invalids, and Social Affairs (MoLISA) of Việt Nam and Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade on Monday signed the first bilateral Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) under the Australian Agriculture Visa Programme.

It is expected that Australia will receive about 1,000 Vietnamese agricultural labourers a year, with basic salary (excluding living expenses) from AU$3,200-4,000 a month, quite a competitive level compared to other labour markets popular among Vietnamese workers.
