Minister of Labour and Foreign Employment, Manusha Nanayakkara, yesterday (30) instructed officers of the Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment (SLBFE) to launch a special training programme for Sri Lankans who are emplaning for employment in Romania. To date, Sri Lankans who had been flying to Romania for employment had been provided with the same training programme provided to those leaving for jobs in the Middle East.
The Minister said he had taken this decision following a Zoom meeting with a group of Sri Lankans employed in Bucharest yesterday (30 June). Nanayakkara said Sri Lankans had drawn his attention to issues in their service agreements and obtaining driving licences. He said he had promised to resolve their problems with the intervention of the Foreign Affairs Ministry.
