Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment Minister Imran Ahmad on Sunday said the Malaysian government could open the labour market from next July after the lockdown. In that case, the government is fully prepared to send Bangladeshi workers.

“The government of that country will be contacted in this regard,” he said in a briefing organized at the Ministry of Expatriate Welfare in the capital, informing that “preparations will be made to send workers by making a new database soon.” 

Imran Ahmed said they are hopeful the market can open from next July. “The day the labour market opens, we are ready for everything. “If we can do all these protocols together, then we are ready on the day the labour market opens.”

He added that having a database means including those who are willing to go. “We will set up this server in a week,” he added.
