KATHMANDU, July 13 (Xinhua) -- The Nepali government is preparing to introduce Labor Migration Policy with the objectives of ensuring greater rights and protection of Nepali migrants and proper utilization of remittance receipts in productive sectors.

According to Tuesday's Republica daily report, a draft of the policy prepared by the Ministry of Labor and Transport Management (MoLTM) is currently under consultation among different stakeholders before giving it a final shape.

The first ever migration policy in the country's history envisages minimizing job related risk and insecurity as well as promoting skilled job opportunities through diversification of labor market and forging collaboration through common vision and strategies among sending and destination countries in a bid to discourage human trafficking to overseas destinations.

Encouraging involvement of private sectors and international agencies to explore new labor destinations and promoting labor market for Nepalis as well as taking initiative to open diplomatic missions in recipient countries have also been outlined in the draft policy.

"We have tried to incorporate prominent issues related to foreign employment sector. We will finalize the draft after compiling inputs from stakeholders," a high level source at the MoLTM told the daily.

Likewise, necessary arrangements to bring back Nepalis languishing in foreign jails, fixation of minimum remuneration for overseas jobseekers according to country and jobs and collective bargaining with recipient countries for common remuneration for workers from the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation countries are the other issues incorporated in the draft policy.
