Expatriates working in Bangladesh should have more protection for their employment rights, the minister for labour and expatriates’ welfare has said.
Mosharraf Hossain, speaking at a ceremony for the Non-Gazetted Employees Association of the Manpower Bureau, said: ‘Expatriate workers are playing a vital role in national economy through sending remittance for the country. So, you should serve them with high importance,’ according to The New Nation.
The minister assured members that the government has implemented a range of initiatives to help protect expats’ workers rights, such as establishing the Expatriates Welfare Bank.
Mr Hossain also highlighted the introduction of smart cards and consultation on compiling a digital database to cut down on cases of workers being cheated of their wages.
His comments follow those by president Zillur Rahman, who called on Bangladeshi expatriates living overseas to invest in their home country in order to upgrade it to a middle-income nation by 2021.
The government has also announced draft plans to extend the vote to expatriate Bangladeshis.
