Bangladesh sent trained workers to Serbia for the first time on Saturday.

Nine workers left for the European country on a Turkish Airlines flight in the morning, Shahidul Alam, director general, Bureau of Manpower Employment and Training (BMET), told Bangla Tribune.

The recruitments were allowed on 17 conditions, according to the Ministry of Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment.

The recruiting agency Link-up International Ltd had received a demand letter for 32 workers for Serbia’s Bedem Energy Solutions Company. On the basis of their application, the ministry later allowed the recruitment of 13 workers who had received their visas, against the demand for 32 workers.

One of the key conditions imposed by the ministry is that a representative of the recruiting agency must accompany the workers.

Workers have to pay their own airfare at the time of joining and other conditions will apply in accordance with Serbian Labour Law.

BMET chief Shahidul Alam said efforts were being made to send more skilled workers to the new market.

“Nine people have departed for Serbia in the first phase. I hope the rest will be able to go there soon,” he added.
