Malaysia may consider bringing in workers, including maids from Myanmar, to overcome a shortage of foreign maids following a two-year freeze on maids by the Indonesian government.
Malaysia has agreed to consider the request by Myanmar during Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's two-day official visit to the country which ended today.
Speaking to Malaysian reporters at the end of his visit today, he says, that there is a possibility that Myanmar nationals may be employed as house maids.
However, he adds further discussions on the matter will be required to determine the terms and conditions.
According to the Prime Minister, Malaysia was receptive of the proposal to employ maids from Myanmar.
Datuk Seri Najib says he had also informed Myanmar that about 250,000 Myanmar nationals had registered under the 6P Programme.
