Japanese firms seek to recruit Vietnamese labourers
An exchange programme between enterprises operating in Japan’s Aichi prefecture and international students took place at the University of Nagoya last weekend as part of Japan’s recruitment activities.
At the event
Jointly organised by the Vietnamese Alumni Association in Aichi prefecture Association in Aichi prefecture (VARONET), the Vietnamese Students and Youth Union in Central Japan (VYSA Tokai) and relevant organisations, the event attracted over 50 Japanese companies and organisations such as Denso, Marubushi, Kanefusa, and around 200 foreign students, including those from Vietnam.
The event aimed to promote connection between foreign students in Japan with local firms which have demand for international human resources.
It also offered a good chance for students to pick necessary information related to the Japanese labour market, and learn experience from those who had studied and worked in Japan for many years.
Representatives from Japanese firms and Aichi’s international cooperation department expressed their high hope of students, especially Vietnamese ones. They also set criteria for recruiting staff in the near future.
Nguyen Ba Quang from VARONET highlighted the significance of the event, saying that it marks progress in labour cooperation between Vietnam and Japan in general and Aichi prefecture in particular.
Located in the central south of Japan, Aichi is considered an industrial hub of the country where international groups such Toyota Motor and Denso place their headquarters. The locality is very attractive to foreign labourers, including Vietnamese.
