Human Resources Minister Steven Sim Chee Keong will meet Communications Minister Fahmi Fadzil soon to discuss ways to protect freelance workers and stringers in the media and creative industry.

He said there are approximately 30,000 freelance workers in the sector, and he now wants to expand Social Security Organisation (PERKESO) coverage, including through the Self-Employed Social Security Scheme (SKSPS), which protects self-employed individuals.
