Libya keen to recruit docs, nurses, workers

Says minister

Libya has expressed its keenness to recruit a large number of doctors, nurses and workers from Bangladesh.
Labour and Employment and Expatriate Welfare and Overseas Employment Minister Mosharraf Hossain said this while talking to journalists on his return from Libya at Zia International Airport yesterday.
The Libyan government will set up five vocational training centres in their country for making skilled manpower and trainers from Bangladesh will be appointed for imparting training in the centres, said the minister.
Bangladesh and Libya have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in this connection, he added.
Mosharraf said that Libya also relaxed their conditions for recruiting workers from Bangladesh, which further simplified the recruitment process of workers.
The Libyan government will send a demand letter for recruitment of workers and the recruitment will be made on the basis of this letter.
Already 30,000 workers went to Libya and 10,000 more are waiting to go there, he said.
The minister held separate talks with labour, agriculture and health ministers and deputy foreign minister of Libya during his visit.
An 11-member delegation, led by Mosharraf Hossain, visited Libya from January 11 for expansion of labour market and solving problems in this regard.
