Jordan’s readymade garments (RMG) sector will recruit over 12,000 skilled workers from Bangladesh in one year.
“This recruitment will be processed only through Bangladesh Overseas Employment and Services Limited (BOESL),” Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen said on Tuesday, reports UNB.
One of the employers in Jordan met officials at the Bangladesh embassy in the country and his team will visit Bangladesh soon.
They have requested Bangladesh to allow the recruitment of skilled workers who do not have passports and facilitate providing the selected workers with passports in the shortest possible time.
"This is a good opportunity opening for us," Momen said.
Officials said they will do their best in processing and facilitating passports and other requirements for sending the workers in the shortest possible time.
Bangladesh is one of the largest exporters of readymade garment products in the world.
A number of Bangladeshi RMG workers are already working in Jordan’s readymade garment sector.
Earlier this month, Bangladesh Ambassador to Jordan Nahida Sobhan visited the largest garments factory in Jordan and assured the Bangladeshi workers of Classic Fashion Apparels that the Embassy would always stand by them to ensure their rights and welfare.
