IPOH: The government will announce the new policy on recruitment of foreign workers on Tuesday, Human Resources Minister M Kulasegaran said.
He said the policy, which will be more systematic, was formulated to ensure that the recruitment of foreign workers would be done in line with market demands.
“The new policy will also ensure that the process to recruit and bring foreign workers into the country will be done transparently and according to the stipulated procedures.
“We want a systematic policy because our target is to ensure that the employment of foreign workers will not exceed 15% of the total workers in the country,” he told reporters after opening the “Ride With The Boss” cycling programme organised by Ipoh City Watch and Koperasi Alam Hijau Perak Bhd (Kohijau) here today.
