Looking at the size of foreign employment… Gyeonggi-do, Gyeonggi-do ‘Good’

In the endemic era, which region is the first to recover? Maekyung Economy looked into the ‘new employment figures for foreign workers’ to check how active the industrial economy is by region. Foreign workers play an important role in supplying labor to small and medium-sized manufacturing enterprises with low labor costs. Therefore, it can be interpreted that the higher the ratio of new hires, the more active the industrial economy is.

In the first quarter of 2022, the most active industry was ‘Gyeonggi-do’. The number of general foreign workers (E-9) employed the most. With 68,913 people, it boasted an overwhelmingly high percentage compared to other cities and provinces. It is believed that the influence was influenced by the active employment of foreign workers in industrial complexes in Gyeonggi-do, outside of Seoul.

After Gyeonggi-do, Gyeongsangnam-do (16,987 people) had the best experience. It was followed by Chungnam (14,164 people), North Chungcheong (1316 people), and Gyeongbuk (1243 people), which had many industrial complexes. However, even when all regions ranked 2nd to 5th were combined, the employment rate of Gyeonggi-do was not exceeded.
