Japan Opens Doors to Filipino Nurses and Caregivers

Tetsuo Tsuji, administrative vice labor minister of Japan, announced on Monday the planned hiring of 400 nurses and 600 caregivers from the Philippines as part of a free trade agreement between the two Asian countries.

The pact was signed in Helsinki, Finland on Saturday by Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi and Philippine President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Under the agreement, filipino nurses and caregivers will be allowed to work in Japan after passing japanese language proficiency tests and state qualification examinations.

Japan is also holding talks with Indonesia and other Asian countries on admitting nurses and caregivers.
