Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said no one needs to go abroad illegally by selling off everything with dreams to catch the 'Golden Deer', which might cost one’s life.

"Many people go abroad in search of a Golden Deer. It is true that many people can change their fate and our country also gets benefited…..there is no doubt about it. But, I think, there is no need at all to go to another country illegally," she said.

The premier was speaking at a civic reception accorded to her at Hotel Okura in Tokyo on Tuesday.

Sheikh Hasina said many people are selling off their houses and lands to step into the uncertain path of going abroad. “They even do not know where their job is and what awaits them.”

She further said: "May be the middlemen incited them with big dreams and people started chasing that dream, and they finally lost their lives."

The Prime Minister said the government has introduced a registration system in all digital centres across the country for overseas jobseekers and their lists will be preserved at the Expatriate Welfare Ministry. 

“Anyone can go abroad after checking the nature of the job, salary and other necessary information regarding the job,” she said.

The premier said the government is providing training to overseas jobseekers so that they could get better jobs as well as set up Prabashi Kalyan Bank to give them loan.

She said the overseas jobseekers do not need to sell their houses and lands as there is provision in the bank to provide collateral-free loans to the extremely poor people.

"Having so much opportunity, I do not know why people are going abroad spending Tk8 lakh and die drowning in the sea," she said.

Sheikh Hasina said one can earn enough money if one does business using Tk2 to 4 lakh in Bangladesh. 

Mentioning that 100 economic zones are being set up across the country, she said there will be huge investment as well as jobs, and the lifestyle of people will improve.

State Minister for Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment Imran Ahmad, State Minister for Foreign Minister M Shariar Alam, Bangladeshi expatriates in Japan Saleh Mohammad Arif and Sakura Saber also spoke at the program.

Bangladesh Ambassador to Japan Rabab Fatima conducted the event.
