Under the supervision of Myanmar-Japan SEDA, mechanics from Myanmar will be receiving internships in Japan.
“We signed an MoU concerning sending Myanmar service workers to work at the care centers for the aged in Japan three months ago. Now, mechanics will be sent to Japan as soon as possible. We also have a plan to send other workers to Japan and provide training courses to Myanmar workers who want to be engaged in restaurant and hotel businesses”, said U Aye Min from Myanmar-Japan SEDA.
The Japanese government will allow some 500,000 blue collar workers from ASEAN countries to enter Japan, including from Myanmar, in order to work in 14 types of job. Those who wish to work in Japan must be fluent in the Japanese language, and overseas recruitment will cost US$2,800, as per the set rate by the government. Japan also has a plan to offer loans for half of these expenses.
“We have heard that Japan wishes to hire Myanmar mechanics. This is a precious opportunity for Myanmar youth”, said U San Oo, principal of Progress Automotive Technical Trading School.
Yesterday, Myanmar-Japan SEDA and associates, including Japanese language schools, oversea job recruitment agencies and financial supporting groups, signed an MoU at Sedona Hotel to provide training to trainees and skilled mechanics and send them to Japan.—Zar Ni Maung (Translated by Ei Myat Mon)
