Japan is now working to increase the number of foreign students studying in their country. As we all knew, Olympics are coming to Tokyo in 2020. Due to this event, the demand for labor for foreign employees is increasing. And aside from that, Japan’s technology advancement rise up and the world of information technology is growing in hop and bound which means that software engineers become more in demand. IT personnel are currently short of over 170,000 people, and it is predicted that they will become serious as the population declines. Less software engineer means slow productivity and lesser innovation for electronics, robotics, and other automotive devices. This is the reason why Japan right now is looking for foreign workers for them to continue to build and manufacture modern technologies.
