The Union Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has given a nod to signing a Memorandum of Cooperation (MOC) between the Government of India and Government of Japan, on a Basic Framework for Partnership for Proper Operation of the System Pertaining to ‘Specified Skilled Worker’.

The present Memorandum of Cooperation would set an institutional mechanism for partnership and cooperation between India and Japan on sending and accepting skilled Indian workers. However, the ones who have qualified the required skill and Japanese language test, will be allowed to work in fourteen specified sectors in Japan under the cooperation. These Indian workers would be granted a new status of residence of ‘Specified Skilled Worker’ by the Government of Japan.

Under this MOC, a Joint Working Group will be set up to follow up the implementation of this MOC. This MOC would enhance people-to-people contacts, foster mobility of workers and skilled professionals from India to Japan.

Skilled Indian workers from fourteen sectors such as nursing care, building cleaning, material processing, industrial machinery manufacturing, electric and electronic information, construction, shipbuilding and allied industry, automobile maintenance, aviation, lodging, agriculture, fisheries, food and beverages manufacturing industry and food service industry would have enhanced job opportunities to work in Japan.
