President urges Qatar Amir to recruit more manpower from Bangladesh

President Mohammed Shahabuddin has urged visiting Amir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani to recruit more semi-skilled and skilled young manpower, IT experts, professionals and technicians from Bangladesh.

The Head of the State made the call at a meeting with visiting Amir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani at the Bangabhaban on Tuesday.

Shahabuddin expressed gratitude to the Qatar government for hosting around 3.75 lakh Bangladeshi nationals as they are contributing to the socio-economic development of both Qatar and Bangladesh.

“Bangladesh government has set up 100 SEZs for foreign investors and Qatari investors can invest there. They may invest in agro-production and processing, food packaging, smart agriculture and fertilizer production,” he told the Amir.

President Shahabuddin said the Qatari investors can avail the comprehensive incentives and support in investing in some areas like petro-chemical, energy, machineries, IT, electronics, ceramics, agri-business and food processing in the SEZs.
 
President’s Press Secretary Md Joynal Abedin briefed the BSS after the meeting.

Acknowledging Qatar as a valued partner of Bangladesh in the Gulf region, the President said the Amir’s visit and singing of agreements and memorandums of understanding (MoUs) reflects the commitment of further expanding and deepening bilateral cooperation in days to come.

Bangladesh Foreign Minister Hasan Mahmud, State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid Bipu, foreign secretary and Bangabhaban secretaries were present during the meeting.
