MANILA, Philippines – More than 50,000 skilled workers from the Philippines have the chance to get employed in Japan in the next 6 years once the government of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe finalizes its new rules for giving temporary residence to foreign manual laborers.
Japan’s parliament is set to deliberate during its extraordinary session in autumn on the creation of a new residency status that would allow foreign workers in a wider range of industries to stay for 5 years.
“While we are waiting for the rules and regulations of this new scheme to be released, I personally estimate more than 50,000 workers from the Philippines will come to work in Japan with this new work permit by 2025,” Ambassador Koji Haneda said on Friday, October 19.
