Malaysia is expected to sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) regarding the recruitment of Cambodian domestic helpers in early September, Human Resources Minister M. Saravanan said.
He said the date of the signing of the agreement will be set after reviews by several ministries, including the Home Ministry, are made.
“We have distributed cabinet papers to the relevant ministries for comments. Once the review is complete, we will sign the MOU with the Cambodian side.
“It (the MOU with Cambodia) is expected in the first week of September and once it is signed we will be able to bring domestic helpers from Cambodia,” he said.
Saravanan added that his ministry had also resolved issues with all source countries, and that Malaysia had begun accepting workers from all countries including Bangladesh and Indonesia. – Bernama, August 4, 2022.
