KATHMANDU: Nepal and Malaysia have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on the supply of labour.

Minister for Labour, Employment and Social Security, Gokarna Bista and Malaysian Minister for Human Resources, M Kulasegaran signed the MoU.

Signing of the document by ministers of the two countries has paved way for supply of labour from Nepal to Malaysia, which was halted for six months.

The agreement on supply of labourers was reached after extended efforts. The Malaysian minister had arrived Nepal on Sunday for signing the MoU.
