Speakers have urged the government to ensure services to expatriates for increasing the remittance inflow.

They made the call at a conference titled “Trade, Investment and Remittance” organised by the Centre for NRB, a non-profit research organisation for non-resident Bangladeshis, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on Sunday, according to a press release.

The speakers suggested implementing government services to expatriates, ensuring remittance services in rural areas of Malaysia, improving the quality of services by the embassy, and holding seminars among expatriates on the benefit of sending remittances through legal channels.

Centre for NRB Chairperson MS Shekil Chowdhury presided over the conference.

Among others, businessman Rashed Badal, journalist Ahmadul Kabir, Centre for NRB board member ABM Mostak Hossain and expatriates spoke at the event.

The speakers said that there are many opportunities to increase the volume of trade between Bangladesh and Malaysia.

To boost the remittance inflow, they laid emphasis on making the services available to expatriates easier.

At the conference, the expatriates have been urged to strengthen Bangladesh’s economy by avoiding any illegal channel like hundi while sending remittances.
