PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF) has urged the government to urgently set up a special task force to address the labour shortages in the country.

Its president, Datuk Dr Syed Hussain Syed Husman, (pic) said the government should focus on ensuring an efficient regulation of foreign workers and manage them in a highly controlled manner instead of imposing restrictions that would be difficult to enforce.

Syed Hussain noted that employers are trying to regain business traction with the gradual removal of movement restrictions but many activities still cannot run fully due to the lack of manpower. ─ Bernama
