Japanese textile firms want more Vietnamese guest workers

Textile companies in Japan are seeking to recruit more workers from Vietnam to make up for a lower number of guest workers from other nations this year, reports Tuoi Tre News citing the Board of Management of Vietnamese Guest Workers in Japan.
 
Owing to an increase in domestic demand, several countries, including China, have decreased the number of their guest workers sent to other countries, including Japan, according to the Board.
 
As a result, Japan needs labour force from other countries, and it has shortlisted Vietnam as a source for supply of guest workers, which opens up job opportunities for Vietnamese textile workers.
 
However, it would not be easy for Vietnamese workers to get selected as guest workers, as Japanese firms need high professional skills, the Board said.
 
The criteria for foreign textile workers for recruitment in Japan includes a two years of work experience, but many candidates having experience of more than 2 years have failed to clear the professional exam.
