100,000 Pakistani labourers expected to work in Malaysia by end 2010

Kuala Lumpur, Thu, 27 Aug 2009 ANI

Kuala Lumpur, Aug.27 (ANI): With an estimated three-fold increase in workers, Pakistan is set to join Indonesia, Bangladesh and Myanmar as the largest primary source of foreign labour for Malaysia.

 

Pakistan High Commissioner to Malaysia, Liutenant General (retired) Tahir Mahmud Qazi said the expected surge in number of labourers would help Malaysia cope up with the increasing demand due to the boom in the construction industry.

 

"By December next year, I expect the number of Pakistani workers in the country to increase to 100,000. This will be the culmination of joint efforts to bring them here to assist in the development of Malaysia," Qazi said.

 

He said the massive influx was made possible due to the memorandum of understanding inked between the two countries in 2005.

 

Qazi said Pakistanis over the years, have proved that they are hard working and sincere.

 

"We want more of them to come here to work. They have a proven track record of being hardworking and dependable," The Newstraits Times quoted Qazi, as saying.

 

He said senior Pakistani officials would be visiting Malaysia next month to search for investment opportunities in the country and introduce investment opportunities to the Malaysian business community.

 

"There are huge opportunities awaiting Malaysian businessmen in Pakistan. We need a variety of goods and services, including hypermarkets, communication, information technology facilities and low-cost housing," Qazi added. (ANI)
