'The UAE respects and protects the rights of workforce', Gobash affirmed during a meeting today with visiting Bangladeshi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Dr. Mahmud Hussain.

”Protection of workers must start from the country of origin as those workers should not arrive in the UAE saddled with debts as a result of funds and commissions they paid to recruitment agencies,” he said.

The Bangladeshi minister commended the UAE for its care to the Bangladeshi community in the UAE and lauded the ministry of labour for securing and protecting of rights of Bangladeshi workers.

The two ministers discussed a host of issues dealing with labour and available opportunities in the labour market in the UAE.
