REUTERS/Lim Huey TengKUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysia Airlines’ parent company has sought financial aid from its sole shareholder, the nation’s sovereign wealth fund, as debt restructuring talks with creditors drag on, the company said on Saturday. The group said it remains in talks for a restructuring and that it was targeting a commercial agreement in the first week of December. Malaysia Airlines is seeking to restructure after the COVID-19 pandemic forced it to slash operations. Chief Executive Izham Ismail told staff in a memo last month that the restructuring talks were taking longer than planned.

Tan is a research analyst at a Singapore-based charitable organization, The Head Foundation, but wrote the report on Malaysia's migrant workers in a personal capacity. She pointed out that several industries are heavily dependent on migrant workers, including manufacturing, construction, agriculture, forestry and fishing. What drives a successful transformation of Malaysia's economy is a foundation of sound labor, industrial and educational policies — and not the removal of migrant workers.
