The above figure includes 29,712 female workers, who made up nearly 35 percent. 

During the reviewed period, Japan was the largest manpower importer of Viet Nam with 41,139, guest workers followed by Taiwan (36,956); South Korea (1,799); China (1,024); Hungary (802); Singapore (800); Romania (537).

On July 28, a Memorandum of Understanding on cooperation in basic legal framework was inked between the MoLISA's Department of Overseas Labor Management and Japan's Wakayama prefecture regarding the reception of Vietnamese workers for employment in Japan.

Due to the shortage of workforce, Wakayama has advocated enhancing training and reception of Vietnamese apprentices and workers with specific skills, and engineers for internships and employment in Japan.

Also in July 2023, JHL Viet Nam Group and Nozomi Japan signed a contract to deploy the Japanese standardized E-learning training program for medical caregivers in Viet Nam, opening up the opportunities for Viet Nam to send workers to Japan to care for the elderly in future.

On April 27, 2022, the Government issued Resolution No. 59/NQ-CP on continuing the pilot implementation of sending Vietnamese workers to work seasonally in South Korea in the form of cooperation between regions of the two countries. The implementation period started on January 1, 2022, and lasts five years./.
