The Prime Minister’s four-day official visit to Bangladesh resulted in five bilateral agreements being signed between the two nations. The agreements relate to cooperation in inland waterways, health, agriculture, tourism and public administration training. Jesus, we pray that both of these nations will develop well and in ways that are honoring to Your creation and to the people who live in these lands. We pray that Your Kingdom will be extended in Bhutan. We ask that people will grow in their desire to know more about you, Jesus (The Bible, Luke 12:32).

Saudi Arabia has revealed ambitious plans to create more than 561,000 private-sector jobs by 2023 as part of a new digital era for the Kingdom’s labor market. Minister of Labor Ahmad Al-Rajhi made the announcement at the launch of the Qiwa online platform, which aims to combine all the country’s employment services under one electronic roof. Through digitization, the Ministry of Labor and Social Development hopes to not only boost job opportunities for Saudi men and women, but also to improve workplace efficiency, productivity, and attract international investment. Al-Rajhi said that 45,000 Saudis entered the labor market in the last three months. Pray that the new innovations will lead them to know God’s love. Pray that the new opportunity will enhance their life to seek God (The Bible, Galatians 6:4).
