Tran Tien Duy, deputy head of Nhat Huy Khang Company, said labour demand increases near the year-end. According to Duy, this is when Japan usually starts their fiscal year and the country prioritises Vietnamese labourers.
“The opportunities for Vietnamese labourers in Japan are open with the two countries’ relationship and the vocational skills the workers have,” he said.
Nhat Huy Khang Company will recruit a large number of people from rural areas from now to January 2019.
The representative from Esuhai Company also said that in the last three months of 2018, over 70 Japanese firms would arrive in Vietnam to recruit 325 apprentices on one to three-year contracts. The numbers may increase for one-year contracts. 43 Japanese firms will come to Vietnam in November alone to interview 167 people.
