Staff Reporter :
Switzerland and Bangladesh will hold a bilateral talks on labour migration in Dhaka. The meeting, first of its kind between the two countries, will be held tomorrow.
A Swiss delegation led by Ambassador Vincenzo Mascioli, Director International Cooperation of the State Secretariat for Migration, Federal Department of Justice and Police of Switzerland, will visit Bangladesh from September 10  to September 12, to participate in this meeting.
The objective of the meeting is to discuss bilateral cooperation in the area of migration as well as to exchange views on the regional and multilateral processes related to labour migration. Labour migration -- particularly to the Gulf region -- is an important instrument for Bangladesh to address the growing needs for employment and job creation.
However, the migrant workers sometimes are faced with complex challenges both at home and in their countries of destination.
Switzerland is working with Bangladesh at local, national and global levels to facilitate a safer migration experience for the migrant workers.
The Swiss delegation will visit to Narsingdi district on September 12 -- to see the Return and Reintegration Project of Migrant Workers in Bangladesh -- which is implemented by Brac and co-funded by Switzerland and Denmark.
The project aims to make reintegration economically and socially sustainable for returnee migrants, so that they do not feel obliged to re-migrate.  The Swiss delegation will also meet with the representatives of the Bangladeshi civil society, diplomatic community and development agencies during their visit to Bangladesh.
