Korean envoy saysRemittance by Bangladesh workers plays a significant role in economy

The Embassy of the Republic of Korea and Human Resources Development (HRD) Service of Korea in Dhaka launched a joyous reunion programme at the Bangladesh-Korea Technical Training Centre (BKTTC) at Mirpur with 200 Bangladeshi workers, who had participated in the Employment Permit System (EPS) in Korea.

The event brought together returning Employment Permit System (EPS) workers, Embassy officials, representatives from Bangladesh Overseas Employment and Services Limited (BOESL) including the MD Dr. Mallick, and representatives from HRD Korea. 

This event was held on Thursday (7 Dec) to promote resettlement support for returning workers in Bangladesh. 

Through the creation of a community, it is expected that the ability and experience of returning workers in Korea can be transmitted to prospective workers, as well as a medium of communication to share ideas for a successful settlement in Bangladesh, such as starting a venture business, said the Korean Embassy in Dhaka on Friday (8 Dec).

Ambassador of Korea to Bangladesh Park Young-sik expressed Korea has also dispatched miners and nurses to Germany in the past and dispatched construction workers to the Middle East.

“It provides an important source of investment for national projects and as a result, Korea was able to become a prosperous country.”

He added that the remittance by Bangladesh workers plays a significant role in the economy. 

To dispatch more workers to Korea in the future, a close look at the good example of Nepal. Nepalese workers settle down in Korean society very well and work faithfully, so they have a very good reputation among employers.  

After returning home, overseas returning workers' meetings are very active.

The Ambassador said Bangladesh also expects an overall industrial revival to be prepared by honing workers' high-tech skills, and sincere working attitudes and revitalizing the returning workers community.

At the inaugural ceremony, they discussed the obligations and rights of the returning workers' community members and decided to form eight local communities, including Dhaka, to meet at least once a year.
