Mongolia is among nine countries from where Japan will receive labor force according to Japan’s revised law on immigration control which comes into effect from April, 2019. It opens a great opportunity for Mongolian youth to work and learn technical and technological advancements of the world’s highly developed country, highlighted the Minister S.Chinzorig.
He added that most importantly, an establishment of this Memorandum will create a possibility that Mongolians can work in the same conditions and earn same wages as Japanese workers in Japan under the labor contract besides its helpfulness to ensure employment rights of Mongolians and resolve any of their matters concerning residence in Japan.
They also discussed about renewed Memorandum of Cooperation on the Technical Intern Training Program, signed by two countries in 2017. Accordingly, there are 76 organizations, accredited by the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of Mongolia, working in charge of dispatching interns to Japan.
Regarding the newly established Memorandum of Cooperation on a Basic Framework for Proper Operation of the System pertaining to Foreign Human Resources with the Status of Residence of ‘Specified Skilled Worker’, the General Agency for Labor and Welfare Services of Mongolia will be in charge of its implementation. It will be effective to build mechanisms to exchange information and consult between relevant public organizations and eliminate illicit intermediations.
