Seoul to legalise Bangladeshi expatriates
The South Korean government will take effective steps to legalise all Bangladeshi expatriates living there and will take their maximum care.
The assurance came when Choi Kyung-Hwan, Minister of Knowledge Economy of the Korean government, paid a courtesy call on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at her hotel suite here yesterday.
Appreciating the Bangladeshi expatriates living in South Korea, the minister said they are industrious and honest, the PM's Press Secretary Abul Kalam Azad quoted the Korean minister as saying.
In reply, the PM thanked the minister for his assurance and hoped that the Korean government will take all necessary measures for legalising all Bangladeshi expatriates living in Korea.
She invited Korean investment in large number in Bangladesh's various development sectors like power, gas, shipbuilding, infrastructure and agro-based industries.
She also urged the Korean government to import leather goods, footwear, frozen food, garments and knitwear from Bangladesh.
