Prime Minister Andrej Babis emphasized: Czech is a close friend of Vietnam. As an active member of the EU, the Czech Republic supports the strengthening of relations between Vietnam and the EU, especially the EU will soon complete the procedures to sign EVFTA and EVIPA with Vietnam.
It is known that the Czech Republic is in huge demand of  workers. Currently, the Czech Republic lacks about 200 thousand workers and in the coming time, the need of young labor can be up to 600 thousand people, because the Czech economy has developed stably in recent years. In addition, Czech workers relocated to Western European countries to work. Vietnamese workers from the 80s and 90s who went to study and work in Czechoslovakia (now Czech and Slovakia) were always highly appreciated because of their diligence and hard work.
Thus, with the Czech declaration of re-granting visas for Vietnamese citizens and the issue of recruitment issues for some localities and enterprises of the Czech Republic to the Vietnamese Embassy in the Czech Republic, a large number of Vietnamese workers will have the opportunity to work in the Czech Republic in the near future.
