Head of Labor Management Union of Bungotakada city - Tsuzuki Takashi, the union is a pioneering model of cooperation between labor management union and authority in Japan. The union was established with the aim of preventing the local economic downturn due to labor shortage by promoting the use of foreign technical workers. The economic characteristic of Bungotakada city is the assembly of automobile components - a labor-intensive industry. Therefore, the cooperation between the union and the city authority will bring many benefits, including foreign workers. In the coming time, Bungotakada city still needs about 1,000 international workers. In the future, the company wants to connect Long An province and Bungotakada city in sending skilled workers from Long An province to work in Bungotakada city.

Vice Chairman of Long An Provincial People's Committee - Pham Tan Hoa also introduced general information about the province, especially the strengths of labor resources. Accordingly, the population of Long An is nearly 1.7 million people with more than 900,000 people of working age. The province also has 24 vocational training establishments with more than 560 experienced teachers.

Currently, Long An is developing a labor export project to send workers of the province to work and study abroad, then return to work in factories in the province's industrial parks and clusters. In which, Japan is the first choice in the province's labor export orientation.
