Saravanan to iron out maid issues during Jakarta visit

KUALA LUMPUR: Issues related to the memorandum of understanding (MOU) on the recruitment and placement of Indonesian domestic workers will be finalised during a working visit by Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri M. Saravanan to Jakarta on Monday.

He is scheduled to meet Indonesian Manpower Minister Ida Fauziyah to finalise details so that the MOU can be signed on Feb 7 and 8 in Bali.

“This will also be in line with the decision at a Cabinet meeting on Jan 12 for a visit to be made in order to resolve issues related to the signing of the MOU.

“These main issues related to the MOU which are the one-maid-one-task (for a household), One-Channel System as well as the wages have been agreed through a series of negotiations between the two parties,” he said yesterday.

Saravanan said the previous MOU was signed by the Human Resources Minister in 2006 in Bali and the protocol to amend the MOU was signed in Bandung, Indonesia in 2011, Bernama reported.

“My meeting with Ida Fauziyah will also be attended by Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin who is on a series of working visits to Indonesia as well,” he said.
