According to the report, Japanese businessmen plans to put up a training facility in the Philippines for those who wants to be caregiver or housekeeper in Japan.
This is because their priority is Pinoy caregivers.
Through his interpreter, Taiji Yamada, chief of the Board of Directors of Taizankai said, they witness how caring Filipinos are, particularly in health aspect."
"Gaano ka-caring ang Pinoy pagdating sa health, nakita nila yon."
On the other hand, PHGIC Director Jerome Turga said, among the suggested location for the training facility are in Davao, Cebu or Bohol, and Laguna in Luzon area.
The training is free together with Japanese language classes and the jobs have no placement fee with a salary of more than P70,000 a month.
Turga said facilities are important to level up the knowledge of Filipinos who wants to be caregiver or housekeeper in Japan.
"The only way to do it is for us to have a competitive edge and our advantage from our Asian counterparts is that Pinoy can be better carers compared to the rest of them."
