Khmer MaidsMalaysian Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr. Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said that in order to meet demand, from now on 1,000 Cambodian maids will be sent to Malaysia every month.

“They will be sent here once the memorandum of understanding between the Malaysian government and Cambodia of understanding between the Malaysian government and Cambodia is finalized and signed in a few months’ time,” he said.

He went on to say that Malaysia looked to Cambodia since possible recruitments from Indonesia have remained stagnant.

“Presently there are about 30,000 Cambodians working in Malaysia mainly as housemaids,” the Home Minster told reporters.

The Cambodian government has agreed to setting up training centers for housemaids that would teach them Malaysia’s language, culture and work ethics before they began employment.

Ahmad Zahid said that Malaysia was prepared to aid the Cambodian government, which only has three immigration offices, in order to improve their passport and management issuance system.

“We will assist them in the form of ‘training for the trainers’ programmes for their senior officers who would be based at our Immigration department to learn about our international passport system.”
