The envoys will place their three-year plans before the parliamentary standing committee outlining how those plans will be implemented.
The decision was taken at the latest parliamentary standing committee meeting on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the MoFA said Monday.
As part the process, newly-appointed Bangladesh ambassadors to Japan and Romania placed their three-year planning before the parliamentary body outlining how they will work for expatriates and specific programmes for them.
Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen said the government initiative will help boost accountability of envoys.
State Minister for Foreign Affairs M Shahriar Alam and other members of the committee were present at the meeting with Faruk Khan, MP, in the chair.
Bangladesh envoys abroad have been given necessary directives on how the country's development can be expedited through their efforts.
Dr Momen said financial and food assistance have been sent for expatriates so that no one goes hungry.
He said efforts are being made so that Bangladeshi expatriates get six months’ salaries and other compensation if any worker lose job.
