When Can Labour Shortage Ever Be Resolved?

All industries are in desperate need of workers at the moment to recover their businesses in order to aid Malaysia’s economy, but despite the lifting of the foreign labour freeze, slow and delayed government approval is halting the process. When can this prolonged labour shortage be resolved? Can we see light at the end of this seemingly pitch black tunnel? We speak to Khor Yu Leng, Independent Political Economist, Director of Segi Enam Advisors for more insights.
