Deputy Prime Minister Tran Luu Quang has signed a decision approving the plan to realise the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on labour recruitment, employment and repatriation signed by the Vietnamese and Malaysian Governments on March 21, 2022.
The Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA) is responsible for offering instructions to enterprises operating labour services to Malaysia under contract. During the effective period of the MoU, guidance on changes related to Malaysia's foreign labour admission policies will be provided for enterprises.

Regarding labour management, enterprises sending workers to Malaysia are responsible for arranging and managing workers in accordance with the signed contracts and provisions of the Law on Contract-Based Vietnamese Overseas Workers. They must also closely work with the Vietnamese Embassy in Malaysia in the management of workers.
The MoLISA must instruct the management board for workers and experts in Malaysia and enterprises how to implement the MoU.

The Vietnamese side must partner with Malaysia to establish a joint working group to monitor the implementation of the MoU, hold the annual and ad hoc meetings to discuss arising issues during the implementation.

The group will work since its establishment and until the MoU expires./. VNA
