Japan may accept more foreign trainees
Japan’s construction minister has called for expanding the scope of the government’s program of accepting foreign trainees to cope with an expected labor shortage in the construction industry.
The shortage is likely to become more serious. There’s increasing demand for workers to help rebuild communities affected by the 2011 disaster in northeastern Japan. More construction workers will also be needed to build new facilities and improve infrastructure in the lead-up to the 2020 Summer Olympics and Paralympics in Tokyo.
Land, Transport and Infrastructure Minister Akihiro Ota said on Friday in a meeting of cabinet ministers concerned that the government should expand the trainee program.
The program enables foreigners to stay in Japan for up to 3 years and allows them to be hired by Japanese construction and manufacturing firms and acquire relevant skills.
About 50,000 people from countries such as China, Vietnam and the Philippines are accepted every year under the program. Around 150,000 foreign trainees are believed to be in Japan at present.
The construction industry accepts about 5,000 trainees a year.
Ota said the program should be expanded, and that he wants to discuss the idea with other ministries.
The government is expected to consider increasing the number of trainees and allowing them to stay in the country longer.
