Qatar willing to hire skilled Bangladeshi workers: Envoy Feb 05, 2019 0 1252 12345 Satyendra Pathak Doha Qatar is willing to hire skilled workers from Bangladesh for projects related to 2030 National Vision, the Ambassador of Bangladesh to Qatar HE Ashud Ahmed has said.In an exclusive interview with Qatar Tribune, Ahmed said that labour-related issues and the possibility of recruitment of skilled workers from Bangladesh were discussed at length during his recent meeting with the Minister of Administrative Development, Labour and Social Affairs HE Yousef bin Mohammed al Othman Fakhroo.According to the envoy, Qatar’s labour minister has expressed his willingness to recruit professionals like physicians, engineers, IT experts, bankers and management specialists alongside semi-skilled workers from Bangladesh.“Qatar’s requirement for large number of unskilled workers will lessen once projects related to 2022 Fifa World Cup are over in a couple of years. The focus will then shift to a number of knowledge-based projects to achieve the goals of the 2030 Qatar National Vision that will require a lot of skilled professionals. Professionals from Bangladesh can play a key role in realising Qatar’s ambition to become a knowledge-based economy,” the envoy added.“Qatar is expected to launch a major drive to hire skilled workers soon and Bangladesh is one of the main countries from where they are planning to hire such workers. We have been asked to be prepared for it,” he said. Bangladesh is in a position to meet any demand for skilled workers in Qatar, the envoy said, adding that talks were also held during the meeting to establish facilities to provide the requisite job-related training and Arabic lessons to Qatar-bound workers.“The minister has assured of Qatar’s support in establishing such training facilities in Bangladesh,” he said. “Currently, Qatar is home to more than 400,000 Bangladeshi expatriates. On many occasions, Qatar’s top leaderships have lauded the honest and hardworking Bangladeshi workers for their contribution to the development of Qatar. We want to continue with this cooperation by sending more professionals to Qatar,” he said.Praising Qatar for its worker-friendly initiatives, he said, “Qatar has emerged as one of the most sought-after destinations for migrant workers in the region.” The envoy said a major exhibition of ‘Made in Bangladesh’ products will be held in Doha in October this year. Several Bangladeshi companies from sectors like textiles, food, IT etc. will showcase their products and services at the exhibition, he said.
