  • The exploitation of unregistered migrants by contractors and the lack of social security

 

About the portal:

The portal will introduce a unique identification system and facilitate the registration of workers by contractors, employers, and individual workers themselves. The goal is to ensure comprehensive registration and provide social security for all migrant workers.
