Kuala Lumpur (VNA) - The Malaysian Government will lift a ban on the hiring of foreign workers in manufacturing, construction, plantation and the furniture-making industry.

Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said that the Government is looking to improve the system for hiring foreign workers with the move.

It wants a more foolproof, transparent, and accountable system for the work, he said, adding that the authorities will go on a case-by-case basis.

Because of the ban, issued in February, about 84 percent of the country’s manufacturers were facing labour shortages, according to a survey.-VNA
