    Research outline:

    This research focuses on Asian human resources of different nationalities (India, Vietnam, Singapore, etc.). Following the example of previous initiatives implemented overseas and in Japan, we will conduct a survey which will allow us to make recommendations for Japanese companies on how to improve their capacity to attract and cooperate with Asian talent.
