TOKYO -- Japan is creating a website that will allow Vietnamese to apply online for traineeships in the country, as it hopes to cut out unscrupulous brokers that charge exorbitant fees.

The website, to be created by government affiliate Japan International Cooperation Agency, will list all the information about traineeship opportunities in the country. Candidates can browse that information but will still have to apply through local institutions.
