Jordan’s RMG sector to recruit over 12,000 workers from Bangladesh: FM

Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on Tuesday said Jordan’s readymade garments (RMG) sector will recruit over 12,000 skilled workers from Bangladesh in one year.

“This recruitment will be processed only through Bangladesh Overseas Employment and Services Limited (BOESL),” he told reporters on Tuesday.

One of the employers in Jordan met officials at Bangladesh Embassy there and his team will visit Bangladesh soon.

“This is a good opportunity opening for us,” Dr Momen said.

Bangladesh is one of the largest exporters of readymade garment products in the world.

A number of Bangladeshi RMG workers are already working in Jordan’s readymade garment sector.

Earlier this month, Bangladesh Ambassador to Jordan Nahida Sobhan visited the largest garments factory in Jordan and assured the Bangladeshi workers of Classic Fashion Apparels that the Embassy would always stand by them to ensure their rights and welfare.
