Soon to join this list will be Cambodian Maids.
The first batch of maids from Cambodia could start working in households from July 2013 under a pilot scheme by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) to try out this new source of domestic workers.
According to a report in The Phnom Penh Post last Friday, 400 Cambodian women will be part of the trial.
Before they come over, the maids will receive training for between two and three months, depending on their previous work experience, said maid agencies in Singapore.
Six agencies chosen by the ministry to take part in the scheme were briefed by MOM officers last Monday and told that Cambodian maids will have to be trained before they are deployed in Singapore.
