Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman will meet with his Singapore counterpart K. Shanmugam to discuss the ban on Sabahan and Sarawakian natives below 35 years from working in the republic.

Anifah said he was planning a one-day working visit to seek the reasons for the ban on workers from the two states.

Anifah said he was surprised by the ban but had yet to receive any report on it.

He said he would also discuss the move with the Human Resources Ministry.

Singapore earlier this month implemented a new policy, barring male natives from Sabah and Sarawak below 35 years from working in the republic.
