Vietnam’s Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs and the Japan International Training Cooperation Organisation yesterday signed a record of discussions on a specified skilled workers programme and technical intern programme.
Addressing the event, MOLISA Deputy Minister Le Tan Dung stressed that Japan is one of Vietnam’s four key markets for sending its workers for employment abroad. Vietnamese trainees can earn an average monthly salary of US$1,200, which makes Japan an even more attractive for them, he added.
He reported that more than 68,000 Vietnamese trainees were sent to work in Japan in 2018, increasing the total number of Vietnamese technical intern trainees in Japan to over 160,000.
Vietnam has sent technical intern trainers to Japan since 1992 under a Memorandum of Understanding signed between MOLISA’s Department of Overseas Labour (DOLAB) and JITCO.
He called on JITCO to share information with DOLAB and Vietnamese agencies and organisations authorised for sending or receiving workers to work in Japan.
For his part, JITCO President Hiroyuki Yagi hailed the development and fruitful achievements gained by the Vietnam – Japan cooperation over the past 27 years, and expressed his pleasure that Vietnamese interns account for 50% of the total for foreign interns working in Japan in 2019. Nhan Dan
