Proposal to send manpower to Japan has been made
Today Minister of Labor S.Chinzorig received Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Japan to Mongolia Takenori Shimizu to study the possibility of increasing the number of Mongolian employees working in Japan.
In September 2013, Japan officially received the authority to organize the 32nd Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2020.
Japan is considering the possibility of hiring manpower from other countries to prepare for the Olympic games.
During the meeting with the Ambassador, Minister S.Chinzorig proposed the inclusion of Mongolia in the countries sending manpower. The Minister stressed that Mongolia has sent a large number of workers to Korea with employment contracts.
The Minister noted that Mongolian workers are more interested in going to Japan because of their working conditions and social guarantees.
"We are interested in sending a number of trainees. We are also interested in shortening the term of training and studying the possibility of giving employment status to trainees."
He continued and asked, "Is it possible to establish a quota for the number of trainees to be sent from Mongolia, because we are sending trainees to 180 hours of Japanese language training before sending them to Japan. For instance, at least 50 people may be registered in the training and only four to five people may be hired."
"If there is an initial quota we will conduct registration according to this number. Another important thing which should be changed is the current system of receiving trainees."
At the end of the meeting, the Minister asked the Ambassador to share his proposals with the relevant officials and share their reply.
