The Myanmar authorities have nabbed 20 illegal overseas employment agents for sending Myanmar workers to work abroad with fake documents, the local Flower News reported Monday. The action was taken after some Myanmar workers leaving the Yangon International Airport were recently found with fake Malaysian visa and employment documents. Meanwhile, the Myanmar labor department started in October last year undertaking the task of sending the country's workers to South Korea for employment through government-to-government system, disallowing local overseas employment agencies to do so, according to earlier local report. The Employment Permit System (EPS) for South Korea, previously granted to overseas employment agencies, was stopped in Nov. 2009. According to official figures, in 2010, the Myanmar Ministry of Labour granted licenses to 101 overseas employment agencies for them to send employees abroad except S. Korea. Over the past few decades, Myanmar has been encouraging its people to work overseas as part of its bid to ease domestic employment problem, and thousands of Myanmar job seekers worked in Asian countries with the majority in Malaysia, followed by in South Korea, Singapore and Japan.
