Indonesia’s Manpower Minister, Hanif Dhakiri, has said that he aims to send 70,000 Specified Skilled Workers (SSW) to Japan.
“Within the next five years, we are eyeing up taking 20 percent (70,000 workers) out of the total of 350,000 specified migrant workers that Japan needs,” the minister said while signing the Indonesia-Japan Memorandum of Cooperation at the Manpower Ministry Office on Tuesday.
He further added that the partnership grants Indonesia the chance to work with Japan to fulfill their demands for workers within that are of a productive age. He also thanked Japan for allowing internship opportunities for Indonesians in their country. “Indonesia has sent 81,302 participants up until May of 2019,” Hanif added.
The programme grants Indonesians the opportunity to work as nurses, building, cleaning, and maintenance management, tools, and machine components industry, industrial technicians, electronics, and in the information sector.
