South Korean Ambassador to Sri Lanka, Jong-Moon Choi says Sri Lanka would be given the biggest quota out of 15 countries that have applied for jobs in South Korea 2014
Addressing the opening ceremony of the Korea Corner which was established at the National Library in Colombo7 earlier this week, he noted that there was already a 25,000 strong community of Lankan workers in his country.
“We invite foreign guest workers from fifteen countries including Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh and South East Asian countries and we give a quota, we give a quota to each and every 15 countries and the important thing is that per capita-wise Sri Lanka has the largest share. Sri Lanka is literally number one in terms of the size of the quota. So for the next year we haven’t decided yet; in January we will make the decision on how many seats will be given to each and every country but again I am quite sure that Sri Lanka will be given the highest number of the quota,” he said.
