President M Abdul Hamid urged the Kuwait Government to recruit more professionals as well as more skilled and semi-skilled manpower from Bangladesh in different sectors.

Bangladesh produces world-class products, particularly readymade garment (RMG), ceramics, pharmaceuticals, leather products, jute and jute products, frozen fish, electronics, furniture plastic ware and construction materials, the President mentioned.
