State Minister for Foreign Affairs Md Shahriar Alam has appreciated the independent and balanced foreign policy roles in Oman in the regional and global affairs.

He also appreciated the Omani leadership and people in hosting a good number of Bangladeshi workers in households and businesses.

He made the remarks when Abdul Ghaffar Bin Abdul Karim Al- Bulushi, newly appointed Charge d’ Affaires (CDA) at the Embassy of the Sultanate of Oman in Dhaka, met the state minister at the Foreign Ministry on Monday.

Echoing the same feeling about the Bangladeshi workforce, the CDA appreciated their roles in the infrastructure building and development projects; thus contributing to the economic development of Oman.

Prior to the meeting, the CDA paid a courtesy call-on with Foreign Secretary (Senior Secretary) Masud Bin Momen at his office.

During the meeting, they exchanged views on the means and ways of consolidating and expanding the bilateral ties to new areas of cooperation from the single manpower-dominated focus.

Foreign Secretary urged the CDA to consider emerging areas of cooperation like agriculture and food security, blue economy and enhanced trade between the two countries, IT and Climate Change.

The CDA apprised the foreign secretary that Bangladesh may focus on sending skilled workforce like engineers, doctors, nurses and care-givers to keep up the manpower market in Oman.

Earlier on Sunday, the CDA presented his letter of credence to the foreign minister.
