ISLAMABAD, April 12, 2011 (Balochistan Times): The Overseas Employment Corporation (OEC) has finalized the list of around 200 paramedics who have been selected for jobs in Saudia Arabia.

OEC has sent the data and required documents of the 5,555 labourers to South Korea for their jobs adding that all these people had also passed the Korean Language Test in 2008. He informed that the Korean government would offer them jobs letter very soon. MD said that so far OEC had sent over 85 batches of unskilled labourer to Korea and over 2000 employees had been sent to Korea during 2008 to 2011. He said that people were taking keen interest for going to South Korea as they could easily earn US$ 1400 to 1500 per month which is quite difficult to earn in other countries. Saeed Ahmed said that the OEC has sent over 133,000 people to foreign countries for jobs adding that majority of Pakistanis have gone to Gulf countries. To a question, he said that for the transparency in the process of sending labour to foreign countries, the applicants and selectees data was being up loaded on the OEC website. Saeed said that owing to the friendly policies of the government, the figure of export labour had increased resulting in enhanced ratio of remittances.
