Kathmandu Post / 29 September 2018
After months of deliberation, Nepal and Malaysia have reached closer to a landmark deal as both the governments have agreed on a draft of the labour agreement that will relieve Nepali workers from paying fees for jobs in Malaysia.
The upcoming labour pact is a much anticipated deal between the two countries. The bilateral agreement will not only be the first such formal agreement, but the document will also resume the labour migration of Nepali workers to Malaysia which has been disrupted since mid-May. Nepal had previously pushed for such understanding in 2009, 2010 and 2013, but to no avail.
