South Korea will recruit over 5,000 skilled and semi-skilled workers from Bangladesh in 2009, said Bangladesh's state minister for foreign affairs Hasan Mahmud.

Mahmud disclosed this to reporters on Tuesday after a meeting here with South Korean Ambassador to Bangladesh Suk-Bum Park.

Mahmud said in 2008 some 1,500 Bangladeshis found jobs in construction, textile, fisheries, agriculture, electronics and machinery sectors in South Korea.

"We've the opportunity to send more workers in South Korea as there is still demand of jobs in the East Asian country," Mahmud said.

A senior official of the country's overseas employment ministry said South Korea last year announced to recruit 50,000 skilled manpower in different phases from 14 countries including Bangladesh to make up for its growing shortages of labor force in the country.

He said Seoul signed a memorandum of understanding with Dhaka in June 2008, paving the way for recruitment of skilled Bangladeshi workers by South Korean private companies.

The agreement also protects the interest and rights of Bangladeshi workers in South Korea, where around 19,000 Bangladeshis are now employed, the official said.
