While thanking the Italian government for inclusion of Bangladesh successively in the second year (2022) under the Flussi Decree for seasonal and non-seasonal employment of Bangladeshi workers in Italy, Ambassador Momen expressed deep appreciation for hosting the large Bangladesh community, second largest in Europe after the UK.

The Undersecretary deeply appreciated the Bangladesh diaspora for being peace-loving and hard-working.
