MALAYSIA:::11MP: Management of foreign workers to be improved

PETALING JAYA: Greater focus will be placed on managing and screening the entry of foreign talent in Malaysia to create safer living communities under the 11th Malaysian Plan.
The proportion of foreign workers in the workforce will be capped at 15% of total labour pool in 2020, and will be achieved through the formulation of a comprehensive immigration and employment policy.
This is aimed at reducing reliance on low-skilled foreign workers in a holistic fashion, especially in labour-intensive activities.
