The Italian government has agreed to include Bangladesh in the country's farm workers programme, said Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen.
Public Relations Officer of the ministry confirmed the matter on Monday night.
"At our request, Italian government has finally agreed to include Bangladesh in their Farm Workers programme. The county's government withdrew this privilege as Bangladeshi workers violated the conditions of this programme by not returning home after each season," the minister added.
"This year, when Hon'ble Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina met her counterpart in Rome, she requested him to include Bangladesh in their Farm Workers Programme. The Italian government honoring her request, granted this opportunity to Bangladesh nationals," he said further.
