Plus W Co., Ltd. (Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, President Wakako Sakurai), which introduces and dispatches global human resources and supports the active participation of domestic sideline human resources, introduces and dispatches Pakistani IT human resources to Japanese companies that are suffering from a shortage of engineers. We are here. In order to expand employment opportunities for such overseas IT human resources, we are pleased to announce that we have developed our own Japanese language and Japanese culture learning program and will start offering it from November.
In order to solve the problem of shortage of IT engineers faced by many Japanese companies, we have already networked about 2,000 Pakistani IT human resources (hereinafter referred to as highly skilled human resources) who are ready to work, and have already introduced and dispatched them to Japanese companies. Currently, Pakistan produces 250 million IT engineers annually, and has become known as an IT advanced country. In addition, Japan and Pakistan will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations in 2022, and the relationship between the two countries is deep. However, even though they have business skills, there are many cases where they cannot overcome the hurdles due to the language barrier and the culture and customs of Japanese companies.
Our company established the Japan Center on campus this spring in collaboration with the National University of Science and Technology (hereafter referred to as NUST), a top university in Pakistan. We offer courses that enable students to acquire skills that are immediately useful in business while they are still in school, and in addition to these, we have decided to offer this program at NUST as well. In addition, we are planning to expand to leading universities in Pakistan, and we will gradually expand the provision not only in Islamabad but also in the major cities of Lahore and Karachi. In addition, in this trial implementation, we plan to offer the program to Japanese companies that are already accepting Pakistani IT engineers, and also to Japanese companies that are planning to accept foreign IT engineers in the future. Both of these projects will be carried out in cooperation with local government agencies and major universities in Pakistan.
Regarding our activities in Pakistan, in a speech at the Trade and Investment Seminar hosted by JETRO held in Islamabad last month, Pakistan Investment Board (BOI) Minister Chowdhury Sarik Hussein said, “Plus W We are focusing on promoting the economy,” and appealed that he has expectations for future activities and further utilization of human resources. Under these circumstances, we will start trial provision from this November under the supervision of Shikoku University. Specifically, we will provide information on manners and customs in the work scene of Japanese companies, focusing on Japanese conversation for the minimum necessary communication to be active in Japanese companies as an IT engineer, and work in Japan. We will widely deliver the knowledge and know-how you want to know.

In addition, we have a history and high degree of expertise in Japanese language education, such as having a Japanese teacher training course aimed at becoming a professional in Japanese language education. Furthermore, since the vision of the university set by Chairman Ichiro Sato and President Kazumi Matsushige matched our company’s vision, they agreed to supervise the project.
In developing the program, we asked Professor Yoshie Motoki of Shikoku University to supervise the language field. The lecturer in charge of the program will be Mr. Yuta Matsuda, a language learning consultant who has been involved in language training for companies for many years. In addition, we will ask active engineers active in Japan to supervise, and incorporate many elements necessary from an engineer’s point of view, aiming for content full of originality of Plus W. This trial will be conducted for a total of 12 times (12 weeks), and after that, we will proceed with the development of this program after verification.

We are very pleased to see the increase in employment opportunities for excellent IT engineers from Pakistan at Japanese companies. We believe that more IT engineers will acquire the Japanese language, Japanese culture, and the knowledge necessary for engineers, and increase the opportunities to be active in Japan, which will serve as a bridge between the two countries.
We have high hopes that Plus W will contribute to the further strengthening and development of cooperation between the two countries through this program, and that this program will spread to Pakistani educational institutions and IT engineers aiming to work at Japanese companies. I am sending

Through the introduction and dispatch of highly skilled IT human resources from Pakistan to Japanese companies, we have received many needs for Japanese language skills for IT human resources. We are delighted to be able to carry out the trial, given the large number of endorsements of the program after discussions with major government agencies and universities in Pakistan. Under the supervision of Shikoku University, which has a track record of accepting a large number of international students, mainly from Asia, students not only acquire language skills, but also add the elements of an engineer’s perspective necessary for working at a Japanese company as an immediate force, and learn Japanese culture and culture. One of the great strengths of this program is that it is completely original, covering manners and customs. We will continue to verify through trials and aim for further expansion.
