Vietnam, Japan to bolster labor condition monitoring

Vietnam and Japan agreed Monday to tighten up the monitoring of labor conditions for Vietnamese workers, as Tokyo opens the door to more foreigners amid a staffing shortage.

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe affirmed in their meeting close cooperation in tackling problems such as the issue of unscrupulous brokers.

The Japanese government has stepped up efforts to eliminate the involvement of brokers who charge extortionate fees for processing visas and other services to facilitate workers' entry into Japan.

The government launched a visa system in April to bring in more foreign labor to tackle the shortage.

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc is visiting Japan as he was invited to the two-day Group of 20 summit through Saturday in Osaka.
