SAARC summit to also discuss migration
The 18th South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) summit in Kathmandu is going to discuss migration, of the first time, in the regional forum.
Since all the eight countries in the South Asis are facing similar problems in migration, they are planning to form a common concept on migration and human trafficking.
The Foreign Employment Promotion Board has prepared a draft proposal to be discussed in the summit, informed labour secretary Bhola Prasad Siwakoti.
The Labour Ministry will forward it to the SAARC secretariat – via Foreign Ministry – after studying it, he said, adding that the proposal will help SAARC nations drat a single migration policy.
The proposal also aims at reducing problems and increase benefit of migration, he added.
Since the region is facing similar problems, it has been brought to the table, said executive director of the Board Raghuraj Kafle.
