Vacancies confirm demand
Since early 2011, about 2,000 foreigners have found jobs in the capital. “Most people arrive from Ukraine, Lithuania, Uzbekistan, Turkey and China,” explains Valentin Demchenko — the Head of the Foreign Labour Migration Department at the Minsk City Executive Committee’s Domestic Affairs Department. “Specialists are employed in the fields of construction and public catering while many migrants open their own private firms in Minsk.”
The Minsk City Executive Committee’s Labour, Employment and Social Protection Department informs us that the job vacancies abound for builders, drivers, locomotive drivers, electricians, sellers, high riggers, waiters, seamstresses and conductors.
