Officials report that Saudi Arabia and Bangladesh are actively working on establishing a new Arabic language institute in Dhaka. The initiative aims to align the institute’s curriculum with the Kingdom’s teaching standards, facilitating the preparation of professionals seeking opportunities in the Middle East.

With nearly 3 million Bangladeshis constituting the largest expatriate group in Saudi Arabia and the most significant Bangladeshi community outside their home country, the institute holds strategic importance. Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 outlines objectives anticipating a surge in employment opportunities for skilled professionals from Bangladesh in the Kingdom.

This week, Essa Al-Duhailan, Riyadh’s Ambassador to Dhaka, engaged in discussions regarding the establishment of the language institute. The primary focus is to address the growing demand for Arabic language training in Bangladesh.

“This will be one aspect of the many areas of cooperation between Saudi Arabia and Bangladesh. This morning, I was honored to call on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and we discussed the issue of the Arabic language institution,” the ambassador told the news source.

“We know now that many Bangladeshis are taking courses in Arabic language in some colleges here in Bangladesh, or in Saudi Arabia, or maybe other Arab countries, but if you have this institution, it will be a milestone, a backbone for Arabic language speakers here in Bangladesh.”

The ambassador announced that the institute would serve as a “gift from the government of Saudi Arabia.” He engaged in discussions with Abdul Hamid Zamadder, Secretary of Bangladesh’s Religious Affairs Ministry, regarding the Arabic institute and its teaching program.

“Discussions are ongoing on the establishment of the Saudi-funded Arabic language institute in Dhaka. We are trying to find a suitable location,” Zamadder told the media.

He expressed the belief that the institute would benefit prospective expat workers, as Saudi Arabia is prioritizing efforts to enhance the professional competence of employees in its labor market.

“The Kingdom will help us prepare the curriculum for the institute … It will be an institute that will focus mainly on Arabic language training and research,” he said.

“After obtaining a certificate from this institute, our migrant workers will find better job opportunities in the Kingdom … The institute will be a great help.”
