Around 600 locals have sought permission from the Sagaing Region government to take up jobs in Japan, according to U Moe Kyaw Thu, Minister of Immigration and Human Resources for the region. “Young people need to learn foreign languages and other skills. The Sagaing Region government has received 1,200 applications for overseas jobs, and 600 of the applicants want to work in Japan,” said U Moe Kyaw Thu.
The Japanese government is bringing in workers from ASEAN countries, including Myanmar, for 14 types of jobs — caregiving; cleaning buildings; manufacturing machine parts and tooling; assembling industrial machinery; electrical work, electronics, and information technology; construction; shipbuilding and ship machinery; automobile repair and maintenance; aviation; hospitality; agriculture; fisheries and aquaculture; manufacturing food and beverages; and, food services. “Those who wish to work in Japan must be fluent in Japanese. They need to pass N4 and the required tests for related jobs. They would have to get a work visa from the Japanese Embassy, along with an offer of employment letter from their employers,” he added.
