Published: 05:05 PM, 17 November 2019 Updated: 07:55 PM, 17 November 2019
The governments of Bangladesh and Malaysia agreed to reopen the Malaysian labor market for Bangladeshis. A meeting of the Joint Working Group will be held in Dhaka on November 24 and 25. After the meeting, Bangladeshi workers sending process will start at a low cost.
It is reported that the Malaysian government decided to take manpower from Bangladesh in the ‘G2G Plus’ system in five sectors at the public-private level in 2016. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the two countries in February of that year. A total of 10 manpower export agencies are allowed to send people under this agreement
The agencies are - Career Overseas, HSMT Human Resources, Sanjari International, Rabbi International, Passage Associates, Catharsis International, Unique Eastern Private Limited, Amin Tours & Travels, Prantik Travels & Tourism, and Al Islam Overseas.
One year after the agreement Bangladesh began to send workers to Malaysia in February 2017. In this process, around 3 lakh people went to Malaysia from Bangladesh. The government sets the cost Tk 37,000 only for sending workers to Malaysia. But it is alleged that the agencies have taken more than three lakh taka from every people.
It is alleged that there was a cycle of syndicating the agency. They have embraced at least 4,000 crore taka from the workers in two years. Malaysia has not given visas to Bangladeshi workers again since September 2018. However, the labor market of the country is going to reopen under the auspices of the Bangladesh government.
Expatriates Welfare and Overseas Employment Minister Imran Ahmed visited Malaysia three times to reopen the labor market. He last visited the country from November 5 to 8.
It is reported that on November 6, Imran Ahmed had a meeting with the country’s Minister of Human Resources M Kula Segaran at the parliament building in Kuala Lumpur. The Malaysian government agreed to open the closed labor market for Bangladeshis within a short time.
During the meeting, the ministers of the two countries discussed sending workers at minimum expense. Besides, the scope of involvement of recruiting agencies of both countries, medical test, the social and financial security of employees and data sharing are discussed.
Expatriates Welfare and Overseas Employment Minister Imran Ahmed said that he had visited Malaysia three times so far after taking over the ministry. Bangladeshi workers will be sent to the country soon.
The minister added that those who want to go to Malaysia will have to deposit money in the bank. This method will be maintained to ensure that low-cost workers are sent. Our main goal is to send people to Malaysia at the lowest cost.
