More Vietnamese set to work in Japan

Japan continues to be a popular destination for Vietnamese workers as the number of workers choosing the country to work in sharply rises annually.

According to the Overseas Worker Management Department under the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, Vietnam surpassed the benchmark of 10,000 workers sent to Japan in 2013. The figure reached over 30,000 in 2015; 54,000 in 2017 and 69,000 in 2018.

At present, around 126,000 Vietnamese are working in Japan, making Vietnam the top of 15 countries sending workers to Japan.

This year, the number of Vietnamese workers to Japan is expected to increase considerably after the Japanese government approved an immigration bill to receive 345,000 blue-collar foreign workers in the next five years.

Tran Thi Van Ha, head of the Overseas Worker Management Department’s Communications Board, said that Japan would need workers in shipbuilding, agriculture, nursing, food industry, restaurants, electronics and aviation.

In 2018, besides Japan, 60,000 Vietnamese worked in Taiwan, while 6.538 worked in South Korea, 1,920 in Saudi Arabia, 1,319 in Romania, 1,102 in Malaysia, 1,014 in Algeria and 794 in Kuwait and some other markets./.
