Australia keen to hire BD farm workers
Australia has shown its interest to recruit skilled farm workers from Bangladesh in the coming days.
Australian Immigration and Border Protection Minister Peter Dutton expressed the eagerness during a meeting with Bangladeshi Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment Minister Nurul Islam BSC in Canberra on Thursday, according to message received here.
Peter Dutton said Bangladeshi workers are working in many other countries with reputation, and assured of easing visa regulations for Bangladeshi students in Australia.
Nurul Islam BSC requested the Australian minister to hire skilled Bangladeshi workers for different sectors in Australia.
The two ministers also discussed various issues of bilateral interests, including expansion and strengthening of border security forces, in both countries.
Nurul Islam is currently on a six-day official visit to Australia. He is expected to return home on November 3.
