Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina urged the Saudi government to recruit more manpower from Bangladesh for the mutual benefits of the two brotherly nations.
The Prime Minister made the request when outgoing Ambassador of Saudi Arabia to Bangladesh Dr. Abdullah Bin Naser Al-Busairi paid a courtesy call on her at her Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban office in the capital on Monday evening.
After the meeting, Prime Minister's Press Secretary AKM Shameem Chowdhuri briefed reporters.
He said the Prime Minister thanked the Saudi government for hosting a large number of expatriate Bangladeshis.
In reply, the outgoing Saudi Ambassador said Bangladeshi workers are well-mannered and hardworking and they are now safe in Saudi Arabia.
At the meeting, the Prime Minister hoped that both Bangladesh and Saudi Arabia would continue working together for peace, progress and prosperity as well as welfare of the Muslim Ummah.
Sheikh Hasina requested the envoy to convey her compliments to King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud, the custodian of the two holy mosques-Masjid-al Haram and Masjid-e Nababi.
The Prime Minister thanked Dr Abdullah Bin Naser Al-Busairi for his successful completion of nearly six and a half years' tenure in Bangladesh saying the relations between the two brotherly countries have strengthened during the period. ?UNB
