‘Romania to recruit over 1 lakh Bangladeshi workers’

Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen said Romania will recruit over one lakh Bangladeshi workers next year.

The minister said this while addressing reporters at his secretariate office in the capital on Tuesday evening (December 6).

Abdul Momen said that for long, our people only went to the Middle East. We have been trying to see if they can be sent to other countries. The day before yesterday we came to know that Romania will recruit one lakh Bangladeshi workers, mostly for the construction sector.

The minister also said Romania did not have any consulate in Bangladesh. I told them to open a consulate office. But they don't want to spend so much money for it. The same situation exists in some countries including Malta, Hungary and Bulgaria.

Romania issued nearly 5,000 visas including 3,400 pending visas in Dhaka in the last three months, he added.
