>Malaysia door opens again for workers

>MALAYSIA recently resumed issuing job approvals to Bangladeshi jobseekers — bringing an end to a temporary ban the South-East Asian country had imposed in October last year on the hiring of workers from Bangladesh. (Click for full report)
Authorities say the withdrawal of the ban was made possible due to the efforts of both the sides — Malaysia and Bangladesh.
Amid numerous reports of unemployment, underpayment and various other contract violations by the employers, the two sides have also been working to resolve the workplace issues faced by the Bangladeshi workers who had already been working in Malaysia.
Abdul Matin Chowdhury, the expatriates welfare and overseas employment secretary, told The Daily Star on May 20, “Malaysia has been issuing fresh job approvals regularly for about a month now. The country is now more sincere in addressing foreign workers’ issues. We also took a few measures in this regard.”
Even though 100 percent of the issues could not be claimed to be solved, the magnitude of the problems has been reduced, he observed.
