Bangladesh is now hosting 4.7% of the world's refugee population, Policy Research Institute of Bangladesh chairman has said

Chairman of Policy Research Institute of Bangladesh (PRI) Dr Zaidi Sattar has said the global community must continue its pressure on Myanmar to take back the forcibly-displaced Rohingyas from Bangladesh.

"These displaced people must be repatriated to their homeland on condition that their return is safe, secure and dignified," he said. 

The PRI chairman hoped that the repatriation of 500-600 people a day could be a good beginning.

He was addressing a workshop on Thursday titled "The Rohingya Refugee Crisis and Its Impact on the Host Community" held at the Brac Centre Inn and jointly organized by PRI and UNDP.

Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen attended the event as the chief guest where PRI Research Director Dr MA Razzaque presented the report. 

UNDP Resident Representative Sudipto Mukherjee, among others, spoke on the occasion.

Zaidi Sattar said Bangladesh is now hosting 4.7% of the world's refugee population with only 0.3% of global output.

Talking about poverty impact, he said 2,500 households fell below the poverty line while 1,300 more turned vulnerable.

Professor of International Relations at the Dhaka University Dr CR Abrar said Bangladesh is a shining example of refugee management and their protection.

According to a PRI survey, the prices of all essential food items have risen up to 50% since the Rohingya influx.
