The Vietnamese Embassy in Malaysia has conducted several educational campaigns to raise the awareness of Vietnamese guest workers about the host country’s laws on wildlife conservation.

From April 17-24, the embassy’s working team held briefings on Malaysia’s Wildlife Conservation Act 2010 at companies that employ a large number of Vietnamese workers in Johor, Penang and Selangor states.

The move was aimed at discouraging the workers in particular and the Vietnamese community in general from poaching, trading and trafficking wild animals in Malaysia.

The embassy staff also took the occasion to update the guest workers on Vietnam’s latest regulations on labourers abroad.-VNA
