Labour market in Malaysia
Bangladesh and Malaysia will sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on Sunday to reopen the labour market in Malaysia after a three-year closure.
Regarding the matter, the expat minister said "Detailed information on the MoU will not be available right now. Everything will be revealed after the MoU is signed".
When asked whether the workers will be allowed to change the recruiting organisation in Malaysia, Imran Ahmad said "We have to abide by the rules and regulations of the country which will take workers. It is up to them whether the workers will be allowed to do so."
Saying the cost of going to Malaysia is yet to be fixed, he said a lower cost will be taken from the aspirant migrants.
While talking about the deceptions of recruiting agencies, brokers and syndicates, the minister said, "We know many incidents happened in the past. I have been trying to erase the past since I got the ministerial post. I am not in favour of any syndicate."
