Nazri: New levy ruling postponed due to unresolved issues

Geraldine Tong  |  Published:  |  Modified:

The implementation of the policy requiring employers to pay foreign workers' levy has been postponed to next year due to unresolved issues with the countries involved, Tourism and Culture Minister Mohamed Nazri Aziz said today.

"There are still issues which have not been ironed out, like requirements from the Bangladesh government," he said after officiating the Cafe Malaysia exhibition in Kuala Lumpur.

If the policy involved Malaysian workers, he said, it would be much easier to form and implement a policy.

"But because this involves workers from other countries, they have their own requirements, which is only natural.

"It is their citizens, they are concerned," he said.
