Pakistan is among the top 10 countries for Japan from where it is planning to hire workers, as per the Japanese Ambassador Kuninori Matsuda. Skilled labor will be hired from Pakistan by Japan. They will be given a working visa to overcome the growing decrease in Japan’s population.
Japanese ambassador made this announcement during an interaction with selected journalists who met him at his residence.
The ambassador said, “We are about to open a working visa for skilled Pakistan workers. We are planning to hire Pakistani skilled workers in good numbers. We need skilled workers, as our population is shrinking by each passing day. We are to sign an MOU with the Pakistan government in a month’s time, enabling the Pakistan skilled workers to have an indefinite visa of Japan.”
Adding, ”We need skilled workers from Pakistan, as Pakistanis working there in Japan are very devoted, honest and skilled and are contributing to the country’s development.”
However, the ambassador said that it is important that skilled people learn the Japanese language.
The ambassador said, “Knowing the Japanese language would be a must. It is one of the easiest languages around and easy to get used to.”
Furthermore, he said that those who successfully acquire their visas and pass the first five years in Japan would be allowed to take their families with them. President Dr. Arif Alvi is expected to arrive in Japan to participate in the coronation ceremony.
