Russian manpower market being explored for Bangladeshis

Russian manpower market being explored for Bangladeshis

Bangladesh has begun preparations to explore a new manpower market in Russia to seek job opportunities for Bangladesh nationals in that country. Sources say that the foreign ministry and the expatriates’ welfare and overseas employment ministry are working on the issue.

Before opening any new manpower market in a foreign country, a legal framework has to be prepared with the help of the foreign ministry and other stakeholders.

Once the framework is ready, both the sending and receiving countries will have to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU).

Foreign ministry sources say they have been working on the subject and that it would take some time to sort out all the legal aspects.

Sources in the expatriates’ welfare and overseas employment ministry say a team of the ministry already visited Russia last month to explore the job market there.

The size of the job market for Bangladesh nationals in Russia would not be big.

Only the highly qualified and efficient would get jobs there, the sources add.

Proficiency in Russian would be a pre-requisite, they note.

Regarding the job sectors in which opportunities may lie, the expatriate ministry sources point out education, readymade garments and other industrial sectors.

But before any progress is made, the two countries would have to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on the issue.

The expatriate ministry sources have made it clear that the process would be long-drawn. They, however, say that they are working closely with the foreign ministry to make progress in this regard.

Rownak Jahan, secretary of the expatriates’ welfare and overseas employment ministry, recently told The Independent: “Russia can be a destination for Bangladeshi manpower. A delegation of our ministry has already paid a visit there to explore the market.”

She also said the Russian market was not like other manpower markets for Bangladeshi workers.

“If we can fulfil their requirements, they might take manpower from Bangladesh in teaching, manufacturing, and RMG sectors in Russia. The Russian market holds great potential for us,” she added.

“But those who want to get jobs there should have sound knowledge of the Russian language along with other relevant proficiencies and skills,” she observed.

She said the Russian manpower market was highly competitive as several other countries were competing for the same sectors. As a result, Bangladeshi manpower has to be highly efficient and skilful, she added.
