DHAKA: Malaysian Human Resource Minister Datuk Seri Dr S Subramaniam will visit Bangladesh after the Hari Raya celebration to observe the recruitment system adopted by the government.
He said, during the visit, officers from his ministry and the Home Ministry would study the mechanism in Bangladesh as the recruitment would be carried out on a government to government basis.
He said the decision was made in order to cut down the role of middleman as well as combating fraud middleman activities.
“Bangladesh has approached us to send their workers to our country. Industries also are asking us to open up because of the shortage of workers,” he said.
The minister also told journalists that once they have put the mechanism right, then they can decide whether to open up or not.
He made the disclosure after launching the football tournament organized by the Malaysian India Football Association (MIFA) at the Police Training Centre (Pulapol) here Saturday.
He noted that currently about 200,000 Bangladeshi workers were working in various sectors in Malaysia, and there was higher demand in the plantation and manufacturing sectors.
Malaysia had decided to freeze the intake of Bangladeshi workers in October 2007, the second time such a decision was made after the first in 1999.
