Nepal signs MoU with Japan on supply of workers


Kathmandu, Mar. 25: The government has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Japan in regard with sending Nepali workers to the Japan’s labour market. With this, Japan has been ready to provide employment opportunities to Nepali and open its labour market for them from the official level.
Officiating secretary at the Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Security, Dr Ram Prasad Ghimire and Japan’s Ambassador for Nepal, Masamichi Saigo signed on the MoU from their respective sides amidst a programme at the Ministry on the witness of Minister for Labour, Employment and Social Security, Gokarna Bista. The MoU followed the last January decision of the Japan government to hire workers from several nine countries including Nepal to cope with the situation in the aftermath of insufficient labour force in its market.
On the occasion, Minister Bista said the Japan’s decision to allow Nepali workers to its labour market and the agreement reached to this regard would help further consolidate the bilateral ties, pledging to implement the MoU as soon as possible.
As he said, safe, systematic and decent foreign employment is the priority of the government. The MoU aimed to create a smooth atmosphere for Nepali human resources aspiring foreign employment so that they could reach to an attractive destination without any hassles.
He was hopeful that skills and experiences of Nepali youths achieved in Japan in course of employment would be useful for the development of Nepal. “The government has come up with a plan of sending only skilled human resources in the foreign employment,” he said, adding that the government focus would be on supplying skilled resources to Japan as demanded by its labour market.
Officiating secretary Ghimire said the MoU had been possible within the deadline just due to intense bilateral cooperation. The Japanese ambassador said the MoU would guarantee perks and facilities to Nepali workers on a par with Japanese workers. RSS
