Minister Kato Katsunobu also said: Currently, Japan is studying to amend its applicable legal regulation on the program to receive interns and foreign workers to Japan for internship and work (framework program). In the process of studying and amending this regulation, the Japanese expert council has been paying special attention to the goal of technology transfer, ensuring high-quality human resource training, not only contributing human resources to Japan but also to the world.
"The change to the Specified Technical Intern and Skilled Worker Program aims to create a new system to 'protect and develop' human resources. This is considered a new turning point for Japan in receiving foreign workers", Minister Kato Katsunobu said.
The company's leadership reported to the Minister and the delegation of Japan about the process of nearly 30 years of supplying Vietnamese labors to work abroad as well as supplying an average of 2,000 interns per year for internship in Japan. LOD completely highly values and supports Japan's efforts in researching and amending the applicable legal regulations on the program of receiving foreign interns and workers to Japan for internship and work.
