By Fatih Karimov – Trend:

Iran plans to send some 3,500 skilled workforces to Ireland, the Islamic Republic’s Deputy Minister of Labor Mohammad Amin Sazgarnejad said.

Under a memorandum of understanding which was signed between the two countries, Iran will send skilled workers to the European country in the fields of hospitality and culinary, Sazgarnejad said, IRNA news agency reported Sept. 24.

Following the removal of international sanctions last January, grounds are prepared for presence of Iranian skilled workers in European countries, he added.

Based on Iran’s fourth and fifth Five-Year National Development Plans – FYDP (2005-2015) it was planned to send 100,000 workers abroad, however due to sanctions problems only 4,000 workers were sent overseas.

The country expects to use the new conditions following the implementation of the nuclear deal, to send its workforce abroad, in particular to the Western countries to overcome its raising unemployment rate.
