Malaysia minister in Dhaka to talk manpower trade

মঙ্গলবার, ১৫ নভেম্বর ২০১৬

15 November 2016 Malaysia’s minister for human resource Datuk Seri Richard Riot is in Bangladesh to discuss the manpower export between the two countries.

Richard Riot landed in Dhaka around 10:30am, expatriate welfare and overseas employment ministry’s Additional Secretary Javed Ahmed told The Daily Star.

He will hold a series of meetings with Bangladesh officials to talk manpower export issues, including the processing of 8,000 workers who received Malaysian work permits but are yet to go there.

Bangladeshi migrant workers are the third largest legal migrants in Malaysia with 2,37,991 people working there with proper documents and papers.

Malaysia has been a popular destination for Bangladeshi migrant workers over the last three decades but the recruitment process has always been tainted by malpractices that result in labour abuses.

Following massive irregularities during 2006 and 2008, Malaysia froze recruitment from Bangladesh in early 2009. In late 2012, the country began labour recruitment on a limited scale, but it did not work well allegedly for influence of recruitment agents having vested interests in both the countries.

Malaysia has declared that it would recruit 1.5 million Bangladeshis over the next three years through private sector, but the move got halted following a hue and cry by the trade unions and civil society in Malaysia over alleged involvement of syndicates that wanted to control the recruitment process.
