Shahriar for ensuring rights of migrants to achieve SDG

DHAKA: State Minister for Foreign Affairs M Shahriar Alam yesterday laid emphasis on ensuring all rights of migrants in line with international rules and regulations to provide them safety and dignity to achieve Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs) by 2030.

“Migration is a very crucial issue across the world as it has a close linkage with development….The role of migrants is important to build a stable, peaceful and economically advanced world,” he told a discussion on “Reflection on Intergovernmental Negotiations on the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration” at the CIRDAP auditorium here.

Parliamentarian Caucus on Migration and Development (PCMD) organized the discussion.

Roksana Yasmin Suty, MP and Jebunnesa Afroz, MP, Advocate Hosne Ara Lutfa Dalia, Director General (Bureau of Manpower Employment and Training (BMET) Md Selim Reza and among others, addressed the discussion with Israfil Alam, MP, in the chair.

Shariar said Bangladesh has been working for a long time for the safety of migrants and formulation of an appropriate global migration policy. “We have seen disastrous situation of migrants in different regions of the world. Bangladesh wants a peaceful and stable solution of migrant people for building a better world,” he added.

The State Minister said the government has ensured an easy process of sending migrant workers to foreign countries for increasing flow of remittances.

The average migrant sending cost has reduced significantly as a result of migrant-friendly policies of the government, he said adding, “At present, Bangladeshi workers are going abroad at a nominal cost, which eventually will contribute to the economy of the country.”

“Bangladesh economy largely depends on remittances sent by migrant workers…. So, we are giving special importance to safety and security of both male and female migrant workers,” Shahriar said.

Stressing the need for developing skilled workers for enhancing foreign currency earnings, he said the country should explore economically potential countries to increase the number of migrant workers.

Selim said Bangladesh will play a very active role in the upcoming Global Compact on Migration (GCM) negotiation to ensure right of global migrants.

“Bangladesh believes that the GCM will be an important instrument not only in promoting safe-orderly-regular migration but also realizing its full contribution to the socioeconomic development including poverty reduction,” he added.

Other speakers said remittance of both male and female migrants of the country increased nominally between 2014 and 2017.

Climate change issue should be considered seriously as it has close linkage with both internal and international migration, they said adding many people are being migrated internally and internationally due to the adverse impacts of global climate change.

ভেঙে পড়ছে গ্রিসের অর্থনীতি। দুই মেয়াদে ক্ষমতায় এসেও সিপ্রাস সরকার চিত্রটা পাল্টাতে পারেনি। দিন দিন বাড়ছে বেকারত্ব। গোটা দেশটার আর্থ-সামাজিক…
