Parliament considers law to expand North Korean employment in Mongolia

The Mongolian government has
taken steps to open its doors to workers from North Korea. 

A law to provide work visas
to North Koreans was placed on the agenda of the Mongolia’s Parliament
last week.  

The law, which expands a Mongolian-North
Korean intergovernmental agreement on exchanges of work forces, would
allow North Korean workers to enter Mongolia to work in the country’s
road and construction industries.  

While it was not disclosed
how many North Korean citizens would be allowed to work in Mongolia,
there are currently some 200 working in construction and a variety of
medical-related jobs, according to the Minister of Social Welfare and
Labor.
