The National Recovery Council (NRC) recommends that the approval process for applications for the recruitment of foreign workers be expedited by reducing bureaucracy as well as simplifying and improving the approval process to meet the urgent needs of workers in the relevant industries.

Council chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said that on Thursday (April 14), added that as a short-term measure, the NRC proposed that conditional approval be given to applications that were being processed to expedite the supply of foreign labour to the affected sectors.
