The government will offer job training to foreign workers here to help them have professional expertise, officials said Tuesday.

According to the Human Resource Development Service of Korea, a total of 5,000 applicants who hold E-9 work visas will be selected for the programs to be conducted between June and November.

Several studies by the Ministry of Labor and related institutes have found that migrant workers show lower productivity than their Korean counterparts when they work for the same amount of time.

Nearly 160,000 foreign workers are estimated to be currently employed, the ministry said.

Considering their cultural backgrounds and lifestyles, 67 institutions will offer training programs ranging from simpler jobs such as manufacturing, construction and farming to professional ones including computer repair, auto maintenance and welding.
