According to the Vietnam News Agency correspondent in Tokyo, the majority of overseas Vietnamese in Japan are happy that the government of Vietnam has resumed flight routes to this Northeast Asian country, creating favorable conditions for them to have the opportunity to return home to celebrate Lunar New Year Festival (Tet) with their families.

“I hope that in 2022, Vietnam Airlines will reopen international routes, including routes to Japan. This is a condition for trade activities between the two countries to take place more smoothly and overseas Vietnamese also have the opportunity to return to Vietnam to celebrate Tet,” Mr. Phan Trung Hieu, an overseas Vietnamese living in Japan’s Saitama province, shared.

Along with overseas Vietnamese, many Japanese businesses also welcomed Vietnam’s decision. They also hope that the Japanese Government will soon allow Vietnamese interns to come to this country to work.

“Our biggest wish is that Vietnamese interns can soon come to Japan to work," said Mr. Mikio Kesagayama, President of the Tokyo Business Information Consultancy Cooperation Association (TICC).

He emphasized: "the current working environment in Japan is an indispensable environment for Vietnamese interns."

According to Mr. Mikio, TICC has accepted Vietnamese interns since 1999. As of February 2020, TICC has received a total of about 2,000 Vietnamese interns.

After the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic two years ago, TICC has taken many measures to protect Vietnamese interns against the COVID-19 pandemic and ensure jobs for them./.
