BANGLADESH: Recruiting, money transfer agents asked to ensure safe investment of remittances

Recruiting and money transferring agencies must play a role in ensuring safe and secure investment of remittances from their corporate social responsibility (CSR) point of view, speakers told a seminar here yesterday.

The agencies earn billions of dollars from migrant workers but do nothing for protection of their rights and their family members, they pointed out at the seminar marking the International Human Rights Day.

Chairman of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Ministry of Labour and Employment M Israfil Alam was the chief guest at the seminar on 'Protection of the Rights of Migrant Remitters and their Family' held at Jatiya Press Club.

WARBE Development Foundation (WDB), an NGO working for the migration workers' rights, organised the event in cooperation with International Network of Alternative Financial Institutions (INAFI) and Ovibashi Karma Unnayan Program (OKAF).

WDB Chairman Syed Saiful Haque chaired the seminar, addressed as special guests by President of Bangladesh Association of International Recruiting Agencies (BAIRA) Ghulam Mustafa, Director of Bureau of Manpower, Employment and Training (BMET) Dr Nurul Islam and Project Manager (remittances) of INAFI M Rashed Al Hasan.
