Primorsky hacks foreign workers quota

4 Mar '09
Primorsky regional authorities have reported the creation of an additional 4,000 jobs in the region by slashing a quota for foreign workers, RIA Novosti reported today, citing regional officials.

Earlier this year the RF government reduced the quota for Primorsky Region from 5,800 to 3,900 people, while local authorities reportedly cut another 10% of it.

The officials say there will be about 3,600 foreign workers in the region this year, of whom CIS citizens will only account for about a quarter.

Foreigners will predominantly work in agriculture and construction, according to the officials.
