The Malaysian government says it has launched efforts to remove obstructions seen in the recruitment of Nepali migrant workers for Malaysian jobs.
After the Nepal government took action against some businesses which were allegedly deceiving workers in the home country, the movement of Nepali workers to the country has been temporarily halted and the Nepal government wants to resume it only after the signing of a labour agreement between the two countries.
Following the obstruction, an official of Kuala Lumpur government’s Ministry of Human Resources held a meeting with Nepal’s Acting Ambassador here, Kumar Raj Kharel, recently to solve the issue.
The chief at the Ministry’s Policy and Planning Division, during the meeting, informed that the Malaysian government was aware of the issues raised by Nepal, according to Kharel.
He further informs that officials of the Ministry of Human Resources and the Ministry of Home Affairs in Kuala Lumpur will hold another meeting to find an agreeable solution.
Reaching the solution, however, will take some more time, according to him.
