The workforce is required and needs to be maintained otherwise there will be a major problem by 2018. Measures need to be taken and planned to keep the workforce appropriately. The primary cause of all this is reducing birth rate and an increase in the aging population. By 2018, the current population which is 3.8 million will be reduced to only 3.5 million. The department of labor and welfare has said that the situation will get worse and worse with time.
