New Platform Launched to Train Bangladeshi Job Seekers for Japan

  • Japanese Ambassador in Dhaka, Iwama Kiminori, launched the Asian Skill Development Company Ltd (ASDCL) platform to assist Bangladeshi students aiming to work in Japan by offering education in Japanese language, culture, and etiquette.

    Japanese companies have shown interest in recruiting skilled professionals, technical experts, and construction workers from Bangladesh, Japanese envoy said at the inaugural ceremony at the Asian Skill Development Company's office in the capital, said a press release. Ambassador Kiminori expressed hope that the ASDCL initiative will greatly benefit Bangladeshi job seekers. 

    BIDA Director General Md. Ariful Hoque, Masao Sekiguchi, President and CEO of Mamiya-OP Co. Ltd, Dr. AKM Moazzem Hussain, Honorary Member and Advisor of JBCCI, and M. Jalalul Hai, CEO of Haison Investor Management and Advisory Services, were also in attendance.

    The new platform aims to create a comprehensive support system for Bangladeshi students seeking to work in Japan. At the company, the Mamiya OP Group will provide support through various steps, including language and cultural education, and assistance with skill registration.  The ASDCL will also offer accurate information about Japanese companies, help reduce the financial burden of moving to Japan, and provide ongoing support to Bangladeshi students upon their arrival, said the release. 

    The initiative is a component of the "Specified Skilled Worker Program" initiated in 2019, aiming to enhance collaboration between Japanese local authorities and companies, thereby facilitating a conducive environment for Bangladeshi workers. ASDCL's upcoming plans involve introducing a Japanese language teaching system in Bengali to broaden Japanese language education accessibility for a larger number of Bangladeshi students.
