India-Japan Relationship Paving Way for Remarkable Career Opportunities
The relationship between India and Japan post-Cold War era has progressed significantly, leading to growing ties in matters pertaining to international trading, market penetration, employability, and other fields. How India and Japan complement each other is in terms of human resources and technology. India has abundant skilled manpower, but lacks technology advancements, financial stability, and career opportunities for engineers. On the other hand, Japan has a dearth of young and skilled engineers who can support their services, ship-building, IT, and manufacturing sectors.
Keeping this in perspective, both the countries have signed a ‘Technical Intern Training Program (TITP).’ Under this government skill development program, India will send 3 lakhs skilled youth to Japan for hands-on training for a span of 3-5 years. The latter has agreed upon to bear the financial cost of training the technical interns from India. Eventually, the program is expected to drive around 50,000 engineering jobs in Japan post-training.
