Malaysia to lift manpower import ban, hopes President

President Abdul Hamid on Tuesday hoped that Malaysia will soon lift its temporary ban on manpower import, enabling Bangladesh to send workers as per the agreement signed between the two countries.

Quoting President Press Secretary Joynal Abedin, UNB reports that he expressed the hope when newly appointed Malaysian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Nur Ashikin Binti Mohd Taib presented her credentials to the President at Bangabhaban.

Abdul Hamid said Bangladeshi workers have been contributing positively to the economic development of both Bangladesh and Malaysia.

Expressing satisfaction at the existing trade-investment scenario between the two countries, the President said the Malaysian entrepreneurs can invest more in different sectors of Bangladesh, including textiles, chemical, power and infrastructure.

The envoy said Malaysia attaches importance to its relations with Bangladesh and assured that she would continue to make all-out efforts to boost Malaysian investment in Bangladesh.

She also sought President’s cooperation in discharging her duty in Bangladesh.

Secretaries concerned to the President were present.

Earlier, on her arrival at Bangabhaban, the High Commissioner was given a guard of honour by a contingent of the President’s Guard Regiment.
