The Myanmar Times - Weekend - - Asean Focus -

Ja­pan be­came the most popular des­ti­na­tion for Viet­namese mi­grant labour­ers in 2018 fol­low­ing five years in the sec­ond spot af­ter Tai­wan, the Hanoi gov­ern­ment said Wed­nes­day.

The num­ber of Viet­namese who em­i­grate to Ja­pan for work has surged since around 2014. The fig­ure reached 142,860 last year, fol­lowed by 60,369 who went to Tai­wan and 6538 to South Korea.

In Ja­pan, Viet­nam is con­sid­ered a ma­jor sup­plier of work­ers as Tokyo pre­pares for the en­try of more for­eign work­ers from April to tackle se­ri­ous labour short­ages. – Ky­odo
