Japan’s GTN, Global Trust Network, has assured Minister of Labour and Foreign Employment Manusha Nanayakkara that it will facilitate measures to provide more than 1,000 caregiver jobs in Japan for Sri Lankan workers.
Minister Nanayakkara, who is currently in Japan in a bid to secure job opportunities for Lankan youth, held discussions with GTN Chairman Hiroyuki Goto, Manager of the Skilled Labour Division Yuka Kuwahara, and top management officials.
During talks the Japanese officials agreed to provide jobs for 150 caregiver workers this year and to recruit another 1,000 next year.
GTN, a leading foreign employment agency in Japan, has provided job opportunities in Japan for more than 350,000 foreign workers.

The Minister further stated that Sri Lanka plans to work closely with the organisation in future with the objective of increasing annual job opportunities offered to Sri Lankans in Japan.
