The Malaysian government had raised concerns about Nepal’s decision to ban its workers from going to the country. Since then Malaysian authorities have been requesting Nepali authorities to relax the ban. During discussions with the Nepali side in Malaysia, the local authority had committed to finding a way to resume hiring of Nepali migrants and, if necessary, discussing the issue with the Nepal government. Minister Kulasegaran had shown interest in visiting Nepal to discuss the matter.
The Nepali side is preparing to use the opportunity to discuss various matters, including the issue of illegal agencies that cheated Nepali workers for years under a unilateral policy of the Malaysiangovernment.
The Malaysian minister recently talked about devising a mechanism for hiring Nepalis, possibly the government-to-government modality, saving workers from being cheated in the recruitment phase. An official said they look forward to discussing the G2G modality in detail and reach an agreement during the visit, which has yet to be agreed to
