Government Agrees To Hire 10,000 Sri Lankan Foreign Workers

The Council of Ministers agreed to the recruitment of 10,000 foreign workers from Sri Lanka taking into account the state of the country which is currently hit by the economic crisis.

Human Resources Minister, Datuk Seri M. Saravanan said the Sri Lankan government has submitted an official application to supply manpower and apply for a quota of 10,000 workers.

He said the Cabinet Meeting on Sept 14 agreed on the hiring of the employee and it is one of the government’s efforts to help Sri Lanka which is facing the worst economic crisis in the country.

“I urge the industry and employers to support the good intentions of this government by employing foreign workers from Sri Lanka to fill job vacancies in the sectors that are allowed to hire foreign workers,” he said in a statement today.

According to Saravanan, employers who have been given quota approval and have completed levy payments can seize the opportunity.

He said that until September 14, levy payments had been made for 416,634 foreign worker applications.

Saravanan said employers interested in hiring foreign workers can contact KSM’s Migrant Worker Management Division ([email protected]) or the Peninsular Malaysia Labor Department ([email protected]) for more information.
