PIA Press Release

RP, Japan committed to JPEPA - Palace

Manila (28 November) -- Despite the protest of the Japanese Nursing Association (JNA) to the entry of Filipino nurses in Japan, the Philippines and Japan are committed to implement the Japan-Philippines Economic Partnership Agreement (JPEPA).

Press Secretary and Presidential Spokesman Ignacio R. Bunye made the assurance today in response to reports that the Japanese nursing group is opposing entry of Filipino nurses in their territory.

"The Philippines and Japan are committed to the implementation of the JPEPA in letter and spirit," he said.

Bunye pointed out that although JPEPA is not a perfect accord, the important thing, he said, is that all lines of communication and dialogue are open, and both the Philippines and Japan are bent on making it to succeed for the benefits of the two countries.

"We feel that the exchange of information, knowledge and experiences among nurses from Japan and the Philippines would be worthwhile and mutually rewarding," he assured.

Bunye said all Filipino nurses and caregivers are aware that before they are accepted to work as nurses and caregivers in Japan, they will undergo extensive training and need to pass licensure test.

Under the JPEPA, Filipino nurses and caregivers can work in Japan as long as they undergo training and pass the licensure examination.

The Japanese nursing group questioned the deployment of Filipino nurses in Japan for fear that Japanese nurses will be neglected once they are accepted.

The group also expressed willingness to support the entry of Filipino nurses if the Japanese government assured them of fair treatment, in terms of salaries, and improved working conditions. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
