Bangladesh to sign deal with South Korea for manpower export
font size    

Bangladesh will sign a deal with South Korea on recruitment of workforce under a new arrangement styled Employment Permit System (EPS), private news agency UNB reported Saturday.

A regular meeting of the council of advisers chaired by Chief Adviser Dr Fakhruddin Ahmed on Saturday approved a proposal on manpower export to South Korea at government level through the EPS, introduced by the Far Eastern country this year.

Earlier, they used to recruit manpower on the basis of Industrial Training System (ITS), which has been revoked recently.

A memorandum of understanding (MOU) is expected to be signed during Foreign Affairs Adviser Dr Iftekhar Ahmed Chowdhury's Seoul visit on June 4-6.

The MOU would protect the interest and rights of Bangladeshi workforce in South Korea, where now around 12,000 Bangladeshis work and the new deal could take in some 10,000 more, the report said.

Under the EPS, South Korea will recruit a total of some 50,000 skilled manpower from 14 countries, including Bangladesh.

The estimated 10,000 skilled workers of Bangladesh would be drawn from four categories -- construction, manufacture, services, and agriculture, fisheries and livestock.
