Youths keen on going overseas for work

Most young people want to go overseas for work as the jobs available in the country decline.
The youths are interested in labour exports under MoU to the neighbouring countries. On the other hand, they are waiting for the time to work in Japan and Korea.
When the government offices are reopened with COVID-19 rules, the rates of application for passports become high. The officials conduct an online booking system for passport application processes to prevent the disease infection rate now.
“We are waiting for the chance to work in Thailand via road under the plan of the Ministry of Labour. They will send 200 workers tomorrow for the first time. I am not included in that group this time,” Ko Kaung Myat Win from Hline Township told The Global New Light of Myanmar.
The Mae Sot based media expressed that the Thai government provides vehicles to welcome the Myanmar migrant workers under the MoU system.
“Now, I am studying the Japanese language and waiting for the time that Japan will call workers officially,” said Ko Ko Soe Lwin from Mayangon Township.
As the COVID-19 infection rate was high, most of the job opportunities and businesses were suspended starting last July, and now almost all the businesses resume their operations.
The youths join computer and mobile phone repair services, language, cooking and hospitality training.
“I paid the fees for the hotel cooking class since September 2020. The class was not open for various reasons. I did not lose my training fee but it wasted the time and occurred delays in teaching,” the Global New Light of Myanmar quoted Ko Khin Maung Lin from Myingyan Township as saying. —TWA/GNLM
