The sentence in question:
My attempt at translation: "Concerning the ministry of health, labour and welfare, they decide that the application of foreign students side-jobs and technical trainees for the labour shortage and support of business recovery is voluntary."
I asked about a lot of と constructions recently and Im already a bit paranoid that I stumble across the same mistakes again, but I cant help it. I think that I got it right here, since I looked up "to decide to" on jisho and I think that it fits the context. But Im not sure ^^ A と B する means "make A into B", as far as I remember, so this one "to decide to" is kind of contained in this more general interpretation. But nevertheless, Id like to confirm wether I got it right.^^
