Malaysian Minister for Human Resources Kulasegaran to arrive in Kathmandu today

Kathmandu, October 28

Malaysia’s Minister for Human Resources M Kulasegaran is scheduled to arrive in Kathmandu today a day ahead of a ceremony to sign a new labour agreement with Nepal.

Kulagegaran and his Nepali counterpart Gokarna Bista are to ink the deal amid a special in Kathmandu on Monday. Nepal and Malaysia are yet to sign an official labour agreement despite labour relations for more than 15 years.

A Nepali delegation visited Malaysia last month to give touches to the agreement. A MoU was agreed between the two countries in Putrajaya of Malaysia on September 28.

Malaysia is one of the biggest destinations for Nepali workers, with around 500,000 currently working there. The new labour pact is expected to benefit workers who are already in Malaysia and prospective ones also.
