    More protections for Indonesian workers in Brunei

    Tobapos -- The governments of Indonesia and Brunei Darussalam have discussed the renewal of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) regarding Indonesian workers who are employed in the formal and informal sectors.

    "The MoU regarding the placement and protection of Indonesian migrant workers should be completed to provide legal certainty for both users and migrant workers themselves," the Indonesian Manpower and Transmigration Affairs Minister, Muhaimin Iskandar, stated in a press release here on Monday.

    Muhaimin made the remarks after meeting with the Brunei Home Affairs Minister, Pehin Udana Khotib Dato Paduka Seri Setia.

    According to Muhaimin, the government will continue to accelerate the renewal of the MoU between Indonesia and Brunei regarding the placement and protection of the migrant workers.

    "In general, terms of reference for the changes of the MoU set by the two countries in 2008 have been agreed upon. Therefore, we hope that the MoU renewal can be completed in the near future," the minister noted.

    In addition, the minister said that the MoU will be similar to those used by other countries which, among other things, contain the timing of the holiday break, setting of one off-day in a week, as well as the right to keep passports, the minimum wage to be paid, access of communications with Indonesian representatives and with Indonesian migrant workers' families.

    Currently, there are 67,913 Indonesian workers in Brunei Darussalam.
