Cambodian Maids May Resume Working in Malaysia

Cambodia news in English! Here you'll find all the breaking news from Cambodia translated into English for our international readership and expat community to read and comment on. The majority of our news stories are gathered from the local Khmer newspapers, but we also bring you newsworthy media from Cambodia before you read them anywhere else. Because of the huge population of the capital city, most articles are from Phnom Penh, but Siem Reap, Sihanoukville, and Kampot often make the headlines as well. We report on all arrests and deaths of foreigners in Cambodia, and the details often come from the Cambodian police or local Khmer journalists. As an ASEAN news outlet, we also publish regional news and events from our neighboring countries. We also share local Khmer news stories that you won't find in English anywhere else. If you're looking for a certain article, you may use our site's search feature to find it quickly.

Saravanan: Malaysia to get maids from Cambodia

GOPENG, MALAYSIA: The Human Resources Ministry will table a proposal to the cabinet on a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to bring in maids from Cambodia.

Minister Datuk Seri M. Saravanan said yesterday that his ministry had gone through various stages involving the matter and the MoU was expected to be completed soon.

“We are in the process (of finalising the details) and it will take time, but we are trying to speed it up.

“I will present the proposed MoU to the cabinet to bring in foreign workers, especially Muslim maids from Cambodia.”

Saravanan was responding to questions about the government’s proposal to bring in maids from countries other than Indonesia.

“I have had discussions with the Cambodian government and they will provide us the opportunity (to bring in maids).”
