Beef soup & Taiwan beer

I met three Taiwanese this time. All of them were technical experts and fuluent in English. In Japan, technical people usually cannot speak English even if they can read. In terms of this point, Asian people especially in developing countries who can speak English are competitive than other countries. Because their salary are much lower than its in Japan, USA and EU. Their skills are not so low and sometimes higher than developed countries.

Garment industry has been shited from a country to a country. There were many garment factories in Japan several decades ago. But now few factories in Japan. Clothes, used to be produced in Japan, firstly shifted to production in Korea and Taiwan and then shifted to China. Now there is a tendency to shift to India, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Vietnam where labor cost is cheaper than China.

Cost shifts job from A country to B country. Is this furmula saying only about garment industry? I think "NO".

In case of garment industry, factories shift to low-cost countries. On the other hand, in case of other industry, low-cost people shift to developed countries. People who are born in developing countries, have excellent skills and want to get higher salary move to Japan, USA or EU. Companies in developed countries want to hire lower-cost human resources.

For example, Japanese companies have begun to recruit foreign people in Japan as "Global human resource" or something like that. I'm afraid that this tendency will possibly and gradually deprive Japanese people of their jobs. But I also think it's quite fair. Regardless of where you were born, your nationality, in which country you live now or which language you speak, excellent-skilled people can get higher salary.

So what I think arts people(文系) in Japan have to get, besides English, of course, is special skill or knowledge like finance. What science people(理系) in Japan have to get is English. Otherwise we cannot survive. This may seem to be a big story. But I'm sure we would be suffering from foreign labor force in the near future unless we get superior ability.
