More Filipinos at Citibank Malaysia
How come? I thought any foreign banks operating in Malaysia should give more space to qualified locals. Of course no locals could sit at the top (although few foreign banks in the country are lead by Malaysians) but employing more non-Malaysians is quite unbecoming.
Or not many Malaysians qualified for the jobs? And dont tell me Bank Negara or the Finance Ministry cannot dig out the provisions which regulate the status of local entity in foreign banks' operating here!
If a financial institution like Citibank employs more Filipinos than Malaysians, then something was not right.
Of course, the National Union of Bank Employees (NUBE) knew the situation better. If not, they would not have picketed in front of the US Embassy in Kuala Lumpur yesterday in avowing their dissatisfaction over the issue (here).
Means that if we open our door to any foreign banks, including from Bangladesh, Nepal, Russia or Argentina, they are free to employ more non-Malaysians!
Take a look into this issue please, Mr Finance Minister!
