Tokyo, April 26 (Jiji Press)--The Immigration Services Agency said Friday that it will grant Japan's new resident status to two Cambodian women.

According to the agency, the official position of two women in their 20s, who are currently working in Japan under its technical training program, will be changed to the new status, which was introduced this month.

The agency sent a notice of the change to the two on the same day.

The two women will become the first foreign workers living in Japan under the new status. They will be accepted for work in the agriculture sector.

After the two women, who currently work at a company in the western Japan prefecture of Osaka, obtain the new status, they will work in Gobo, a city in the western Japan prefecture of Wakayama, and other locations.
