Jordan’s readymade garments (RMG) sector will recruit over 12,000 skilled workers from Bangladesh in a year, according to the latter’s foreign minister AK Abdul Momen, who recently said the recruitment will be processed only through the Bangladesh Overseas Employment and Services Limited (BOESL). The government will facilitate quick passport processing for the workers.

A number of Bangladeshi workers are already working in Jordan’s readymade garment sector.

Earlier this months, Bangladesh ambassador to Jordan Nahida Sobhan visited Classic Fashion Apparels in Jordan and assured Bangladeshi workers there that the Embassy would always stand by them to ensure their rights and welfare, according to Bangla media reports.
