Japan's government plans to expand opportunities for students and working adults to acquire digital skills, aiming to add about 110,000 people studying in the field through fiscal 2024 as it faces a shortage of talent in areas like artificial intelligence.
There are an estimated one million digital workers in Japan. The government projects there will be a shortage of 2.3 million by fiscal 2026.
Japan will accredit courses that teach the necessary knowledge and skills. There are concerns about a lack of instructors, so the government will consider ways to allow companies to dispatch specialists with hands-on experience.
The government will also work on developing digital workers through collaboration between companies and universities, and has laid out plans to aid workers who want to shift to a digital field through reskilling.
