MoC with Japan on manpower export vital outcome of PM’s efforts: Envoy

Dhaka, Aug 29 : Bangladesh Ambassador to Japan Rabab Fatima has said the Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) signed recently with Tokyo on accepting and sending Bangladeshi ‘Specified Skilled Workers’ (SSW) to Japan was a significant outcome of PM Sheikh Hasina’s efforts during her Tokyo visit in May last.

“Signing the MoC which has opened a new horizon for Bangladesh’s labour market was like a dream comes true for us,” she said while delivering her speech at a meeting in Tokyo on Thursday.

The discussion meeting on ‘Human Resource Potentials of Bangladesh’ was organised by the Embassy of Bangladesh in Japan at the Bangabandhu auditorium to consult different stakeholders involved in recruiting and sending human resources from Bangladesh to Japan.

Ambassador Fatima presided over the meeting and moderated the discussion which was participated by many CEOs and representatives of sending, receiving, supporting and implementing organisations from Japan and Bangladesh.

Secretary of the Ministry of Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment (MoEW&OE) Rownaq Jahan was present.

Rownaq Jahan said a deep relation exists between Bangladesh and Japan.

As one of the major manpower-sending countries in the world, Bangladesh is taking necessary measures to ensure good governance in Human Resources Management and safe migration of workforce abroad, including Japan, she added.

The Secretary invited Japanese employers to explore Bangladeshi labour market terming Bangladeshi workers as hardworking and diligent people and quick-learners.

She thanked the Ambassador and the officials concerned for their efforts in exploring and realising the potential of Japanese market.

The participants informed the audience that a separate operational guideline for sending organisations to send SSW to Japan had been prepared and the MoEW&OE was fully aware of to stop proxy-test taking, forgery, falsification of documents or other wrongful acts.

A presentation on the Human Resource of Bangladesh was also made.
