Govt raising migrant workers' issues 'at bilateral, multilateral forums'

The Himalayan Times, Nepal, 30 December 2021 - Minister of Foreign Affairs Narayan Khadka has said that the government has been raising the issues of safe migration and protection of the rights and welfare of the Nepali migrant workers with priority at bilateral and multilateral forums.

Addressing 'Kantipur IME Migration and Remit Summit' here today, he said the government has been raising voice for the protection of the rights and interests of Nepalis who have reached 76 countries in the course of overseas employment through the legal channel.

Minister Khadka said that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Labour were working in a coordinated way to address the problems of Nepalis engaged in the international labour market.

Stressing the need of intensive consultations and policy-level collaboration between the two ministries for systematising the 'Free Visa, Free Ticket' facility to Nepali migrant workers, he said the value of remittances could not be overlooked as it was the hard-earned money sent back by Nepali workers from foreign lands.

"The Nepali youths are cheated at each and every step due to the absence of monitoring and evaluation."
