HSP Seminar (#225) Resident Filipinos in Aging Japan: Future Perspectives

Description: As more developed countries (MDC) face aging, low birthrate and “war for talent”, Japan too faces decreasing working population. Today, increasing number of resident Filipinos are engaged in various jobs such as housekeeping, elderly caregiving, farming, IT business, factory, service industry (including distribution industry), construction, and so on. We are going to understand the background of their presence in Japan. It is pointed out that Japan’s poor migration policy forces local governments, citizen’s groups and private companies to make up the gaps. We are going to seek how Japan can make the society comfortable for them to realize a globally competitive multicultural society by crafting pertinent policies.
