Kathmandu, May 12: In a bid to expand the foreign labour markets for Nepali migrant workers, the government is looking to sign labour deals with Turkey and Poland.
“A draft of the memorandum of understanding (MoU) in this regard has already been exchanged between Nepal and Turkey, the Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Security sources reportedly inform. The ministry is expected to send such draft to Poland soon.
Both Turkey and Poland not only acknowledge the dedication of Nepali youths to their assigned duties but also keen to hire them, it is learnt.
The possibility of these two foreign countries recruiting the labourers from Nepal on the basis of government to government (G2G) model for various technical and non-technical jobs is high.
While signing the proposed pacts with Turkey and Poland, the government is preparing to incorporate major labour provisions like supplying workers at zero-cost and ensuring them minimum wages.
