‘Over 1 million Bangladeshis went abroad for work in 2017’
State Minister for Foreign Affairs Shahriar Alam has said the hard-earned remittances of Bangladeshi migrant workers living around the world have been making significant contribution to development back home, with the number of Bangladeshis going abroad for employment exceeding one million in 2017. He was speaking at a pre-dissemination workshop on “Panel Survey on Impact of Migration on Poverty and Local Development” at CIRDAP auditorium in Dhaka on Wednesday, a press release read. He said: “However, still many of our migrants go through various difficulties during their migratory phases. Some major impediments such as high cost of migration, lack of skills of the migrants and regional imbalances in the migration flows often undermine the benefits of migration.” “We all should strive to make these processes migrants friendly,” he added. The state minister said the government has undertaken the ‘Mainstreaming Migration into National Development Strategies’ program, aimed at enabling government and other stakeholders to take appropriate measures and actions in order to integrate migration into the national and sectoral development planning and to continually monitor and adjust their approaches on these issues. He said: “In recent years, the international community has also acknowledged the contribution of migration to economic development in major global declarations including the ‘2030 Agenda’.”
