Dhaka silent on Taiwanese requirement for 3000 workers

The Government of Taiwan had proposed to recruit 3,000 Bangladeshi workers every year, but no response has been received from authorities in Dhaka, largely due to foreign policy issues.

A representative at the Taipei Liaison Office in Dhaka told Fibre2fashion, “The proposal was discussed in detail in 2004 by Government officials from both the sides. It was decided then, that Bangladesh would set up an office in Taiwan to manage manpower. It was also concluded that workers would be recruited in different sectors, mainly textile, through the office established in Taipei. However, even after four long years, no positive response has been recieved by the domestic authorities and a final decision in this regard is still being awaited.”

Taiwan's interest to hire Bangladeshi workers every year can be seen in the backdrop of increasing demand for cheap labor in Taiwanese job market.

Presently some 0.3 million foreign workers mainly from Vietnam, the Philippines and China, are working in Taiwan, but the country boasts of accommodating a much larger number because of its rapidly growing industrial sector and high demand for manpower.

Keeping the healthy trade relations between the two countries in mind, it is hoped that a decision to send workers from Bangladesh to Taiwan will reached soon. In terms of bilateral trade, the balance leans heavily towards Taiwan because while Bangladesh imports goods worth US $400 million, mainly comprising machinery and raw materials, it exports products worth only $15 million to Taiwan.

In fact, Taiwanese investors have also relocated several of their footwear and leather factories, valued at over $300 million, from China to Bangladesh.
