A group of 20 workers have gone to Malaysia, which is considered as one of the most preferred destination for Bangladeshi workers, under ‘Zero Cost Migration’ programme.
This ‘Zero Cost Migration’ programme is supervised and implemented by Mohammed Ruhul Amin Shawpon, proprietor of Catharsis International, and former secretary general of BAIRA.
The jobs provided by the Malaysian employer company Instyle Sofa Sdn Bhd were allocated in favuor of Imperial Resources Ltd through auto allocation system which was procured and managed by JG Alfalah Management.
A press conference was organised on Monday in the Catharsis Complex located at Bashundhara, Dhaka wherein the proprietor of Catharsis International Mohammed Ruhul Amin Shawpon, Mohammad Sohel Rana, proprietor of JG Alfalah Management and Mohammad Mahbubor Rahman, managing director of Imperial Resources Ltd were present.
Senior officers from the Ministry of Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment and the BMET also attended the programme, said a press release.
After the initial briefing, chairman of the Catharsis International and the ministry’s representatives replied to the questions of the respected journalists.
Later on, there was an online video conference with the minister labor in our high commission in Kuala Lumpur.
He briefed the journalists on the prospects of Bangladeshi workers in Malaysia and particularly on the scope of ‘Zero Cost Migration’ there.
In the ILO policy of fair recruitment initiative, some internationally reputed firms in Malaysia have recently agreed to recruit workers on ‘Zero Cost Migration’.
The employers will bear all the costs of such migration including expenses in Bangladesh and in Malaysia like passport, medical, visa, insurance, air ticket etc.
The workers will get minimum pay of RM 1500, overtime and other benefits as allowed under the labour law of Malaysia. They will enjoy better benefits and facilities than Middle Eastern countries.
Migration of Bangladeshi workers started afresh in August 2022 under the programme and so far around two hundred thousand workers have gone to Malaysia. They have found their job and availing of pay and allowances as per the job contracts.
As the government of Malaysia introduced auto allocation system under the purview of a holistic online based system Foreign Workers Centralized Management System, there is hardly any problem being faced by the workers. However, in case of any problem the Malaysian authorities, the employers, agencies concerned and the Bangladesh High Commission in Kuala Lumpur have sincere trying to mitigate those issues and so far this is no any noticeable problems.
