Feedback On Intake Of Foreign Construction Workers From India


The Ministry of Works is in the process of preparing a working paper to Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of Human Resources to request for foreign construction workers from India to be allowed to work in the construction industry. Currently Indian workers are only allowed to work on high-tension cables in the construction industry.

As the Prime Mover and the Recognised Voice of the Malaysian Construction Industry, MBAM would like to offer our wholehearted support towards this initiative by the Ministry of Works. This is due to various factors, the main one being the lack of construction workers, local and foreign to fill the supply-demand gap and the suitability of  foreign construction workers from India to work under the Malaysian weather (hot and humid) compared to foreign construction workers from some other colder climate source countries. If approved, foreign construction workers from India can be requested via the same channels as foreign construction workers from other source countries and under the same conditions (e.g. skills are accredited by CIDB approved accreditation centres in the source countries).

To support this initiative, MBAM would like to compile feedback on trades required and numbers needed from respective MBAM Members. Please download the REPLY SLIP below:
