Malaysia is determined to reduce the dependence of Low skilled migrant workforce by employing Local Workers.

Govt has introduced a newEconomic policy, to encourage local worker recruitment and to restrict foreign labour hiring.

As per this policy, only 3 sectors, Construction, Agriculture and Plantation sectors are allowed to hire foreign workers.

Why should you hire a Foreign Worker in Malaysia?

Small and Medium enterprises are experiencing a shortage of workers, because; 
Locals are not willing to work in “Dirty, Dangerous and Difficult Jobs”, also known as the 3D jobs.
SMB’s need to hire more labour to run their business smoothly and efficiently.

Many “Small and Medium Business (SMB)”, “SDN BHD” and “BHD” companies take the services of a Reputed Foreign Worker Agency that supply both skilled and unskilled migrant workers without any hassle;

Currently,  Plantation and Commodity sector, which includes palm, cocoa and rubber, employs 220,000 locals and 265,397 registered foreign workers but requires 1 million workers.

Malaysia’s Plantation industry including Palm, is short by 5,00,000 workers

Malaysia farms face US$3 bil hit from palm oil worker shortage

Sectors still plagued by labour shortage

Shortage of Labour in Service, Construction, Plantation, Agriculture & Manufacturing sectors might jeopardize the Malaysian economy.

Begining from Quota Approval, Selection, Recruitment, Hiring, Documentation, Visa processing, Management of Worker, Accommodation, etc, until the worker returns to his home country, after the expiry of his work visa.

It’s no secret that Malaysia needs to outsource workers from other source countries due to the shortage of manpower locally.
