Japan will sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Pakistan to import skilled Pakistani manpower for 14 different sectors at a ceremony on December 23.
Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development Sayed Zulfikar Abbas Bukhari revealed this during an online interactive session (Pakistan Se Rabta) with the expatriates.
The MoU will enable Pakistanis to work in 14 sectors of Japan, including construction, information technology, nursing, manufacturing, engineering, and others.
He said the ministry has already started sending skilled workforce to European countries including Romania and the United Kingdom.
“We are exploring new markets for export of manpower other than the Middle East,” he said while responding to a query.
