Bangladesh has said the recently signed Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) on recruiting ‘Specified Skilled Workers’ will help Japan receive more skilled workforce from Bangladesh benefiting both the countries.

Bangladesh also sought Japan’s support for early repatriation of the forcefully displaced Myanmar nationals.

The issues were discussed when newly-appointed Japanese Ambassador Naoki Ito met State Minister for Foreign Affairs M Shahriar Alam at the latter’s office on Tuesday.

Both expressed confidence that the regular holding of the Public Private Economic Dialogue (PPED) between the two countries will deepen economic cooperation and attract increased investment from Japan, said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs here on Wednesday.

This was the first courtesy meeting of the Ambassador after presenting credentials to President Abdul Hamid.

During the meeting, they also discussed all major issues.

The State Minister thanked the Ambassador for concluding the MoC on recruiting ‘Specified Skilled Workers.’
