Muar Furniture Sector Short of 10,000 Foreign Workers

Furniture manufacturers in Johor are facing foreign labour shortage and it has caused at least 10 manufacturers in Muar to close last year, said the Federation of Johor Furniture Manufacturers and Traders Association president Koh Chon Chai. He said the problem is serious and the industry players in the state were short of 10,000 foreign workers.

“This has affected production. Some have been forced to close down,” he said on the sidelines of a trade conference.

Koh said Muar is a major furniture production base for the country and 63% of the furniture exported by Malaysia is produced in Johor.

“There are some 800 factories. We export to over 100 countries. Our export is worth about RM9.5 billion. Demand is good due to the quality of our raw materials and good design,” he said.

Koh said automation was not the solution to the labour woes.

“Our products can only fetch premium prices when we tell our customers that our furniture is handmade,” he said.

He said, the handmade requirement has become one of the obstacles for automation of the industry.

According to statistics, a total of 8,048 foreign workers were brought in for the furniture industry in 2016.

In June, in a move to help the industry, the government banned the export of rubber wood from July 1.

The Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong said that the decision was made following complaints by the furniture industry and exporters that they were facing a shortage.

Wee said the country exported some RM300 million in raw rubber wood yearly to countries like Vietnam and China.

Bangladesh To Send New Foreign Workers To Malaysia

Unemployed Bangladeshis could begin finding work in Malaysia as soon as early next month, the Bangladesh Minister for Expatriate Welfare and overseas employment said Wednesday after talks in Dhaka with his counterpart from Malaysia. “Very soon, Malaysia will start recruiting Bangladesh foreign workers for its construction, plantation and manufacturing sectors,” Minister Islam’s office said in a statement released Wednesday.

Following discussions on Tuesday with Richard Riot Anak Jaem, the Malaysian Human Resources Minister, Nurul Islam told reporters that flights carrying Bangladeshi workers to Malaysia could begin in the first week of December.

“Very soon, Malaysia will start recruiting Bangladesh workers for its construction, plantation and manufacturing sectors,” Minister Islam’s office said in a statement released Wednesday.

“The Malaysian minister said they will start recruiting workers from Bangladesh very soon and the Malaysian government is keen to recruit workers from Bangladesh.”

Islam did not discuss the number of Bangladeshis who would be able to find work in Malaysia’s plantation, construction and manufacturing sectors, and Riot returned to Malaysia on Wednesday following his two-day visit without talking to reporters.

When contacted in Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday evening, Peter Dennis, Riot’s senior private secretary, declined comment, telling BenarNews that the minister would issue no statements about the meeting in Dhaka.

service_foreign_workersNumber not known

No agreement was signed at this week’s meeting in the Bangladeshi capital, and it was unclear whether the latest talks were a follow-up to a memorandum of understanding signed by both countries in February. Initial reports then said that Kuala Lumpur had agreed to recruit as many as 1.5 million workers from Bangladesh over the next three years for jobs in its agriculture and manufacturing sectors.

But a day after the MoU was signed, Malaysia announced a moratorium on all new arrivals of migrant workers from Bangladesh and other countries. In May, Malaysian immigration officials said that they planned to ease the hiring freeze on foreign workers on condition that employers proved that these migrants were essential to their businesses, according to a report in Malay Mail Online.

About 300,000 Bangladeshis work in Malaysia, sending about 110 billion taka (U.S. $1.4 billion) back home every year, according to government figures.

News of the latest bilateral talks in Dhaka drew jobless people to Bangladesh’s Bureau of Manpower, Employment and Training in the capital, as recruiting agencies began promising to find jobs for clients at a cost of 40,000 taka ($507) per head.

“We cannot figure out how many Bangladeshis will be able to go to Malaysia. The recruiting agencies will contact the Malaysian employers and send them, charging some 40,000 taka for each. But I think this is possible to send people [in] two weeks as our minister has stated,” Jahangir Alam, the information officer of the Expatriates’ Welfare Ministry, told BenarNews on Wednesday.

He said the government would be involved in the employment process so recruiting agencies could not exploit potential candidates.

Migrant advocates concerned

Meanwhile, migrant rights groups questioned the likelihood that Bangladeshis could be employed in Malaysia so soon.

“You see how the minister’s comment impacted the unemployed and poor youths: they have started visiting recruiting agents with money. Nobody knows how it is possible to get a job in Malaysia in less than two weeks,” Syed Saiful Haque, chairman of Warbe Development Foundation, a group that advocates migrants’ rights, told BenarNews on Wednesday.

He said corrupt middlemen already were luring poor and illiterate youths and their families with promises of jobs in Malaysia in exchange for payments.

“They are going to the brokers and the agents, as the government has not made any clear-cut statement on the procedure of going to Malaysia for jobs. The middlemen will exploit the situation. They will tell each of the workers that if they do not pay them more money immediately, he will not get the job. Thus many of the people will sell their land and other valuables to manage the money for the middlemen,” Haque said.

Malaysia Hire Bangladeshi Workers In Services, Manufacturing and Construction Sectors

“We have an agreement with Malaysia for the foreign workers recruitment. Now, we have discussed to expedite the process based on that agreement,” an additional secretary of the ministry told The Daily Star. Officials at the expatriates’ welfare ministry said both the governments are now in the final phase to start the recruitment of the workers soon.

Nurul Islam is scheduled to brief reporters about the developments of the recruitment tomorrow, they added.

Visiting Malaysian Human Resources Minister Richard Riot holds a meeting with Expatriates Welfare and Overseas Employment Minister Nurul Islam at his official in Dhaka on November 15, 2016.

“We have an agreement with Malaysia for the workers’ recruitment. Now, we have discussed to expedite the process based on that agreement,” an additional secretary of the ministry told The Daily Star.

The Malaysian government suspended the recruitment of foreign workers from all countries including Bangladesh on February 19 just a day after the two governments signed a memorandum of understanding in Dhaka.

But the ministry officials said the agreement with Malaysia was not suspended rather they were negotiating with the foreign labour receiving country on some key issues including recruitment process, migration costs and salaries.

After huge criticisms for an alleged syndicate by some selective Bangladeshi recruiting agents to dominate the Malaysian job market, the expatriates’ welfare ministry said it will not give any scope of forming any syndicate.

“We have discussed with the visiting Malaysian minister and informed him that they must include our 745 recruiting agents for the job otherwise the process will be hampered due to some selective agents,” said Minister Nurul Islam.

However, Ruhul Amin, secretary general of Bangladesh Association of International Recruiting Agencies (Baira), told this correspondent that they are not aware of the Malaysian government’s decision yet.

Malaysia has been a popular destination for Bangladesh foreign workers over the last three decades but the recruitment process has always been tainted by malpractices that result in labour abuses.

Following massive irregularities during 2006 and 2008, Malaysia froze recruitment from Bangladesh in early 2009. In late 2012, the country began labour recruitment on a limited scale, but it did not work well allegedly for the influence of recruitment agents having vested interests in both the countries.

Currently, around three lakh Bangladeshis are working in different sectors in Malaysia legally while a good number of the Bangladeshis are also working without legal documents.

Malaysia Government To Speed Up Process To Hire Bangladesh Workers

Minister says dire shortage in three sectors, resulting in billions of ringgits of losses, has made Cabinet to call for urgency in addressing demand. The process of bringing new foreign workers from Bangladesh will be expedited to cover the shortage of workers in three sectors, Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister Mah Siew Keong said in an event last Friday.

mah-siew-keongHe added that the government was working with their Bangladeshi counterparts at the highest level to ensure that the demand was met for migrant workers as the plantation, rubber glove manufacturing and furniture sectors were in dire need of workers, The New Straits Times (NST) reported.

“Last week, the Cabinet directed Human Resources Minister Richard Riot Jaem to speed up the process of sourcing new hires from Bangladesh.

“My ministry is coordinating with relevant authorities to ease this problem so that you can meet the export orders,” Mah was quoted as saying at a dinner hosted by the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Furniture Industry Association in conjunction with its 60th anniversary in Subang.

Mah’s comments followed that of Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who told the Dewan Rakyat earlier last week of the impact the freeze on foreign workers had on the furniture and plantation sector so far this year.

On Nov 2, Zahid, who is also Home Minister, said Putrajaya’s decision to freeze the intake of foreign workers led to the furniture and plantation sector incurring losses of over RM7.7 billion this year.

The inability to hire sufficient manpower, Zahid said, saw the local furniture industry record RM6.7 billion in losses, while the plantation industry incurred losses of over RM1 billion.

Many furniture companies, he explained, were unable to deliver their products for the international market on time.

“The furniture exporters have signed agreements with foreign buyers but they cannot fulfil their obligations due to the insufficient workforce.

“I know that the furniture industry alone needs more than 8,000 Bangladeshi employees and they are waiting for the freeze on intake to be lifted due to production issues,” Zahid said in winding up the 2017 Budget for his ministry.

In February, the government suspended the recruitment of all legal foreign workers, including those from Bangladesh.

Then on May 12, Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai told the press that the Cabinet was lifting the freeze for the manufacturing, plantation, construction and furniture sectors.

Soon after that however, former Immigration Director-General Sakib Kusmi was quoted as saying that the easing up would begin only after the government concluded its exercise to legalise illegal foreign workers.

Two Million Foreign Workers Hold Temporary Malaysia Working Permits

Almost two million foreign workers are holding valid temporary working permits in the country, the Dewan Rakyat was told.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said a total of 1,854,684 foreign workers were holding the Temporary Employment Pass (PLKS) issued by the Immigration Department as of Sept this year.

“The highest number is from Indonesia (749,226), followed by Nepal (411,364), Bangladesh (237,991), Myanmar (140,259), India (121,430) and others (194,374),” said Dr Ahmad Zahid, who is also the Home Minister, in a written reply to Lim Lip Eng (DAP-Segambut).

Lim had asked the government to reveal the total number of foreign workers and the policy in hiring them.

“The hiring of foreign workers is a temporary measure to fill the job vacancies. After the employment period is over, they are required to return back to their country of origin,” he said.

He noted that the government had made the decision on Feb 19 to suspend applications of new foreign workers including from Bangladesh until it completed the assessment on the real need of each industry.

“The levy imposed on foreign workers differs from each industry and was clustered according to its own categories,” he said.

Levy is set at RM1,850 for the first category, comprising the manufacturing, construction and service sector, said Dr Ahmad Zahid.

It is set at RM640 for the second category, comprising the agriculture and agro-industries, while for domestic helper, levy is set at RM410 per person.

Malaysia May “Open” Foreign Worker Market In A Week, Said Expat Minister

The Malaysian government may open its foreign workers job market for the Bangladeshi workers within seven days, expatriates’ welfare minister said Thursday. He said Bangladesh High Commission in Kuala Lumpur recently has informed the ministry that the market will be open shortly.

bangladeshi-worker

“The Malaysian market may be open within seven days as our Bangladesh mission has given such indication,” Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment (EWOE) minister Nurul Islam said.

He was speaking to reporters after the launch of Probash Bandhu call centre at the Probashi Kallayan Bhaban in the city.

He also said they will fix migration cost for Malaysia-bound workers immediately after opening of the market.

Replying to a query, the minister said that workers will be selected from the existing database. “We have already enlisted a large number of workers. Workers will be sent from the existing database.”

Mr Islam said foreign workers will be sent through private recruitment companies.

When contacted, Bangladesh Association of International Recruiting Agencies (BAIRA) secretary general Ruhul Amin said that the Southeast Asian country needs a significant number of foreign workers to run their trade and services sectors.

“We hope nearly 250,000 workers will get employment opportunities every year in the Malaysian market”.

When asked, the BAIRA leader said they would follow what were stipulated in the deal which was signed between Dhaka and Kuala Lumpur in fixing migration cost.

He said they will try to keep the migration cost for Malaysia-bound workers at a ‘rational’ level.

Abdur Rouf, joint secretary of the ministry of EWOE, told the FE the ministry would set up a cell in Malaysia to oversee whether private agencies formed syndicates, charged extra migration costs and exploited workers.

The cell will monitor the overall migration process to the Malaysian market. Representatives from the Bangladesh mission in Malaysia, expatriate welfare ministry and manpower recruiters’ association will work in the cell, he said.

“So, fraudulent manpower agencies will not be able to cheat the workers,” he said.

He said Malaysia will recruit workers in five sectors, including service, construction, manufacturing, plantation and farming.

Nearly 600,000 Bangladeshi workers have been staying in Malaysia, of which 70 per cent are working in the construction sector, while 30 per cent in plantation, according to sector insiders.

Meanwhile, the expatriate welfare minister launched call centre named ‘Probash Bandhu’ for expatriate workers in Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and Jordan.

Bangladeshi workers will get swift services from the centre. The centre will receive call from workers from 9.00 am to 6.00 pm.

The expatriate workers will be able to discuss on their passport-related problems, legal issues, sending back dead bodies, sending back sick and wounded workers and financial support, compensations, stipend etc through the call centre.

The workers can also lodge complaints if they don’t get due services from the government.

The complaints will be forwarded to the departments concerned for due action. The ministry will introduce the same facilities for other destination countries gradually.
