A Swiss delegation is set to arrive in Dhaka today on a three-day visit to hold bilateral talks on migration, the first of its kind between the two countries.
The delegation will be led by Ambassador Vincenzo Mascioli, director of International Cooperation, State Secretariat for Migration, Federal Department of Justice, and Police of Switzerland.
“The objective of this meeting is to discuss bilateral cooperation in the area of migration as well as to exchange views on the regional and multilateral processes related to labour migration,” said a statement from Swiss embassy in Dhaka.
Switzerland is working with Bangladesh at local, national, and global levels to facilitate a safer migration experience, the statement added.
The Swiss delegation will travel to Narsingdi on September 12 to visit the Return and Reintegration Project of Migrant Workers in Bangladesh, which is implemented by Brac and co-funded by Switzerland and Denmark.
