MOLISA will also study and select qualified vocational schools or enterprises to recruit candidates. On improving the quality of candidates from the beginning, the Minister asked IM Japan to flexibly apply some criteria such as requirement on Japanese language level. Ethnic minority people or residents in poor districts  have a desire to join the program, but due to limited living conditions, they have less opportunities to access foreign languages. In addition, the IM Japan side should soon add Japanese teachers to the Overseas Labor Center; Renovation of the Overseas Workers Center will also be considered as appropriate training, refresher, rotation ... to promote the effectiveness of this cooperation program.
