After receiving the policy document and the 10,000 signatures Chandrani Bandara, the women affairs minister said, "We know the issues of migrated women's families and the difficulties of the children. We are taking all possible efforts to reduce the number of women migrate to foreign 

Countries while providing employment opportunities locally."
