Expatriate medical insurance policyholders and other foreign workers in Bangladesh are at the centre of a call for more rights for international workers.
According to the Daily Star, the country's minister for expatriate welfare, Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, commented at Saturday's International Migrants' Day: "It is high time that Bangladeshi migrants who send home nearly $11 billion yearly are given due importance."
The special day was marked by government groups and non-governmental organisations holding rallies, discussions and debates on the subject of expatriate workers' rights.
Expatriate welfare ministry secretary Zafar Ahmed Khan said the government "is amending the immigration law to make it stringent and giving migrants better protection", the news source reported.
Meanwhile, the Gulf Times reports that the inflow of remittances of expatriate employees into Bangladesh increased by around five per cent in November from the previous month.
The Bangladesh Bank noted that the country received $945.98 million in November, up by $22 million from the total in October.
