Training centres are to be established in a bid to prevent Bangladeshi expatriates from being exploited when working overseas.
Labour and employment minister Engr Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain set out the proposals at a Prospect of Manpower and Search for New Labour Market seminar earlier this week, reported the Financial Express.
He mentioned that seven committees have been set up in a bid to find new and emerging markets for Bangladesh’s overseas expatriate workforce.
‘These high-level committees would travel across the globe, focusing on specific countries, and would convince the authorities concerned through positive representation of the country,’ he told the seminar.
It comes after Bangladesh formed the Expatriate Welfare Bank in a move to protect vital remittances being sent back home from expatriates working overseas.
The minister acknowledged a fall in fresh employment opportunities for expat workers in the Middle East, commenting: ‘We might have filled our employment quota there.’
His comments come as Saudi Arabia’s General Statistics Department of the Ministry of Economy and Planning released figures showing that of the kingdom’s population of 27 million, 8,429,401 are expatriates.
