Malaysian Association of Foreign Maid Agencies (Papa) president Jeffrey Foo said all that was needed now was a mechanism to ensure these helpers were properly trained and certified.

Foo said Papa was ready to work with the source countries to create a win-win situation.
"Local employers will be satisfied if they get what they are paying for, which are skilled helpers who can do the task they are hired for," he said.
The Star reported yesterday that Malaysia is in a fix because neighbouring countries are not in favour of sending domestic help here.
Foo said Indonesia, where most of the foreign maids are from, is not closing the door entirely.
Instead, it is adopting a more professional approach with its policy to stop sending live-in maids from next year.
A possible solution, according to Foo, is for the Government to license companies to supply part-time domestic maids to households who need them.
These companies could take care of the maids' lodging and food but this would require a shift in government policy.
Foo pointed out that foreign workers brought in as cleaners were not supposed to be sent to work as domestic maids at individual homes.

Meanwhile, Malaysian Association of Foreign Maid Agencies (PAPA) President Jeffrey Foo urged Malaysia to seriously consider recruiting domestic maids from Bangladesh.

He hoped that the government's intention to recruit some 1.5 million Bangladeshi workers in stages over a three-year period to fulfil the requests for manpower from various sectors would also cover the domestic help sector.
"Malaysian employers are fed up with the shortage of Indonesian maids and are also not satisfied with their quality of work. We've also received complaints that some irresponsible agents are imposing very steep fees to recruit domestic helpers," he said.
He suggested that the government initiate discussions with new source nations to reduce its dependence on Indonesia for the supply of maids.
"Countries like Cambodia, Bangladesh and Nepal are believed to have no problems in sending their maids to Malaysia," he added.
