Labour officials of Nepal and Malaysia have discussed implementing a memorandum of understanding they signed in October last year.

The agreement that ensured recruitment of Nepali workers in Malaysia at zero cost has not come into effect at owing to lack of mechanisms and structures to facilitate the process.

In this context, Nepal’s Labour Secretary Mahesh Prasad Dahal held a meeting with Malaysian Human Resources Minister M Kulasegaran in Geneva on the sidelines of the International Labour Conference recently.

During the meeting, the officials discussed how pending tasks related to implementation of the pact could be finalised at the earliest, according to Ram Prasad Ghimire, a member of the Nepali delegation.

The officials have agreed to convene a meeting of a joint technical committee within one month to review the progress and plan what is needed next, according to him.
