There're things beyond their control, she acknowledges

High Commissioner of Malaysia to Bangladesh Haznah Md Hashim on Wednesday said they want to make sure that jobs are guaranteed for all the Bangladeshis who are going to Malaysia.

"We are committed to that. We are in good cooperation with the government of Bangladesh to address any relevant issues," she told diplomatic correspondents in an interaction, describing how serious her government is about the welfare of Bangladeshi workers.

The High Commissioner, however, acknowledged that there might be syndicates that are beyond the control of both Bangladesh and Malaysian governments.

"You just mentioned syndicates. Of course there are things beyond our control. This is something beyond not only Malaysian government, but also beyond the control of Bangladesh government," she said.

The Malaysian High Commissioner said they are committed to make things better in the future.

She said her government is committed to ensuring the welfare of Bangladeshi workers in Malaysia.

The High Commissioner highly appreciated Bangladeshi workers' contribution to Malaysia in a big way. "We want to ensure that everything is in place."

She said things will be reviewed time to time on the basis of needs and supply and demand.

During an interaction with the members of the Diplomatic Correspondents Association, Bangladesh (DCAB), High Commissioner Haznah said so far the deadline for Bangladeshi workers to reach Malaysia is May 31. "It's fixed by my government. It was announced in January this year."

The High Commissioner highlighted her country's efforts to offer world-class healthcare, education, and tourism facilities with an affordable cost.

She also talked about the Free Trade Agreement between the two countries. "I am confident that it would happen."

DCAB President Nurul Islam Hassib also spoke at the session and thanked the High Commission for hosting the discussion.
