Saudi Arabia reopened today (Friday) manpower export market for Bangladeshi jobseekers after a long seven years of embargo.
A high level Saudi delegation comprising representatives of concerned KSA ministries will visit Bangladesh probably in a week. The delegation will discuss modalities of recruitment.
The Saudi government imposed a ban on importing manpower from Bangladesh in 2008 alleging anomalies in the recruitment process.
Before the embargo, around one lakh people used to migrate to Saudi Arabia for jobs.
