VietNamNet Bridge – The salary Vietnamese receive at Japanese businesses is half of what workers in China can expect. The key lies in productivity and the shift of production to higher stages of the value chain.
A recent survey by JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization) showed Vietnamese workers received $4,025 on average per year in 2016, though they worked for leading Japanese companies.
The amount of money was less than 50 percent of the salary that Japanese companies paid to Chinese workers who work for factories in China.
