Myanmar migrant workers are seen working at the construction site in Japan.

The Myanmar Embassy in Tokyo made a notification on 15 November that Japanese companies have offered 224 demand letters for Myanmar migrant workers.
The information about the 224 letters was sent back to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs after the Myanmar Embassy in Tokyo had examined the letters between 1 and 15 November. Those demand letters were sent to the Ministry of Labour through the MoFA.
The verification process was executed by checking whether the labour supervision company in Japan and the recruitment factories/companies are officially established in Japan, and by sending back the findings on the documentary evidence and opinions to the MoL via the MoFA.
It is reported that the licenced overseas recruitment agencies will send Myanmar workers with 224 job offer letters.
On 6 May, the Union Minister for Labour received Mr Watanabe Hideo, chairman of the Japan Myanmar Association (JMA) and discussed matters concerning the status of sending Myanmar workers to Japan with a G-to-G system under the Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) signed by Myanmar’s Ministry of Labour and Japan’s Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare.
Japan was one of the top foreign investors in Myanmar in the past decade. A total of 126 Japanese enterprises benefited Myanmar US$1.853 billion as of March 2022. —TWA/GNLM
