Maid agents have been visiting Sri Lanka, or are planning to do so, to hire more maids to cushion the shortfall in supply from Indonesia.

Checks by the Singaporean Straits Times showed that at least seven agents aim to bring in more Sri Lankan maids in the next few months.

The Sri Lanka High Commission is arranging a meeting with representatives from the Association of Employment Agencies Singapore and officials from the Foreign Employment Bureau in Sri Lanka to discuss recruitment plans.

The Sri Lanka High Commission expects the number of Sri Lankan maids to go up to about 6,000 by the middle of next year, from about 4,500 now.
