Malaysia agrees MoU with Bangladesh on migrant workers


Recruitment allowed for all sectors except plantation

The cabinet of the Government of Malaysia on Friday agreed on the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Bangladesh on the recruitment of migrant workers for all sectors except plantation.

Malaysian Human Resource Minister Datuk Seri M Saravanan announced the development in a statement following the cabinet meeting, reports Malaysian state-run news agency Bernama.

As per the approval of the cabinet, the recruitment of migrant workers will be allowed for the agriculture, manufacturing, services, mining and quarrying, construction, and domestic service sectors.
The Malaysian cabinet also agreed on the postponement of a multi-tier levy from January 1 to July 1 next year, to reduce the financial burden on employers.

“In view of the recruitment covering all the sectors permitted and to curb the spread of Covid-19, the Ministry of Human Resources will collaborate with the Health Ministry and National Security Council to finetune the standard operating procedure (SOP) on the entry of foreign workers,” the statement said.

“This includes the quarantine aspects to ensure there’s no compromise on safety and health,” it added.
