Sudan, Bangladesh to sign deal on manpower importation


March 29, 2008 (DHAKA) – Sudan and Bangladesh are staged consultations to sign an agreement related to the importation of manpower as the Sudanese economy has reached the takeoff stage.

Sudan is enjoying an oil-fueled economic boom even as its wartorn Darfur region suffers through brutal violence. U.S. and European companies are largely shunning Sudan, but countries in Asia and the Mideast like China, Saudi Arabia and Libya have heavily invested.

The ambassador of Sudan to Bangladesh, Daffalla El-Haj Ali Osman last Thursday discussed the deal with the Bangladeshi Foreign Minister Iftekhar Ahmed Chowdhury at his office.

Ambassador Ali Osman handed over a draft of an agreement on "Political Understanding", on the issue expected to be signed between the two countries shortly.

Sudan’s state Minister for Foreign Affairs Al-Samani Al-Wasila early this month in a meeting on the sideline of the Islamic summit in Dakar, told Ahmed Chowdhury that there is a need or Bangladeshi skilled and semi-skilled manpower in Sudanese development.

"The Sudanese government and people would welcome the participation of Bangladeshi companies and firms in the consequent economic activities" he Al-Wasila said.

"We would be happy to fill this need," Dr. Chowdhury told Elsamani.

Chowdhury told Al- Wasila that there are plans by his government to inaugurate diplomatic mission in Khartoum "in line with Bangladesh’s growing relations with that country".
