KATHMANDU, Oct 21: Representatives of Malaysian employment companies are currently in Kathmandu to resume the employment process that remained halted for one and a half years.
As the process resumed, Nepali laborers flocked to a Gairidhara-based manpower company in the capital on Saturday seeking job opportunities in Malaysia. Holding their passport, application forms and other required credentials, a crowd of about three thousand aspiring youths were jostling one another on the premises of Wide Space International Manpower to sit for an interview to be selected for Hartalega Gloves Company, a Malaysian company.
According to the company representatives, the migrant workers don’t have to pay for passport let alone visa and other charges. The company will also pay for their transportation and accommodation prior to their departure to Malaysia.
The crowd not only reflected acute unemployment but also attraction among Nepalis toward Malaysia jobs.
Malaysia picked three Nepali manpower companies to take 500 Nepali migrant workers.
