Myanmar is planning to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Japanese government to send Myanmar workers to Japan, according to the Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population on February 13.
“Japan and Myanmar have similar lifestyles. So, they are like Myanmar. To my knowledge, Japan has had no other arrangements with other countries regarding labour,” Ministry of Labour’s Permanent Secretary U Myo Aung told The Myanmar Times.
“They have offered to have this with Myanmar since we have also requested to send workers there,” he said.
Both countries are now discussing details of the labour migration arrangement, following which the Ministry of Labour will submit the MoU draft contract to the Office of the Attorney General of the Union to be confirmed and prescribed, said U Myo Aung.
“Now, we are negotiating to reduce the agency’s service fees.
“We also have asked their employers what kind of skillful labour they want and also have requested for the employers to pay for labour training,” he said.
Currently, Myanmar agencies have been sending workers to Japan to work in the agricultural, construction and commodity productions industries. Japan has a high demand for workers in their construction industry.
U Myo Aung said that agencies collect about US$2,800 from workers going to Japan. The Ministry of Labour is trying to reduce that service fee with the new MoU contract.
“Now both our countries have been planning to sign the MoU contract to increase cooperation. This is a good system,” said Myanmar Overseas Employment Agencies Federation’s general secretary U Kyaw Htin Kyaw.
