Japan and Vietnam will cooperate to improve the quality of technical education programs and enhance the capability of construction workers under a memorandum of understanding signed on Thursday.
Newswire Vietnamplus reported yesterday that Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Construction Bui Pham Khanh and Japanese Deputy Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Kazuhiko Aoki inked the memo on developing human resources for construction in Tokyo.
The Southeast Asian country will be among three nations to receive an annual amount of 10.8 million JPY (US$90,000) to train human resources for the construction sector,
The human resources training cooperation is in effect until 2021 and is a part of the memorandum of understanding on urban building and development cooperation signed in January between the two countries. Japan is expected to hire more overseas construction workers due to a shortage of workforce to prepare for the infrastructure of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
