He was exchanging views with GiZ country director Dr. Angelika Fleddermann at her office at gulshan on Tuesday.

A five member delegation of BCI, led by Anwar-ul Alam Chowdhury (Parvez) paid a courtesy call on GiZ country director at her office at Gulshan on Tuesday.

Other members of the team are Priti Chakraborty, Sr. Vice President, BCI, Shahidul Islam Niru, Vice President, BCI, KM Rifatuzzaman, Director, BCI and Dr. Ardhendu Shekhar Roy, Secretary General, BCI. Thomas Hubner, Business Scout for Development, GiZ and Dr. Michael Klode, Project Manager, GiZ were also present at the meeting.

BCI President said that the chamber is the sole and exclusive chamber of industrial community which represents all sorts of industries of both the public and private sector and endeavors to contribute to the industrialization as well as economic development of the country.

It also plays importance role to generate new entrepreneurs in the field of small and micro industry fields. BCI always works for the interest of the industries and tries to remove all kinds of obstructions and impediments.     

He also said that cottage, micro and small industries in the country are sectors with immense potential but lacking skilled manpower. So the chamber thinks that to be a developed country and to achieve the vision 2041 there is no alternative to building skilled manpower. 

So BCI can have an important role by training the workers already working in micro and small industries, light engineering sectors, agro-processing industries and all other potential sectors with a view to making them skilled and thereby fulfilling the requirements of the industrialists.

Parvez said, we want to conduct ToT training by bringing trainers from Germany, which is a country rich in workmanship, technology and technical knowhow.

Country Director appreciated the initiatives and thoughts of BCI.

She expresses her good wishes and pledges to co-operate and work together in the coming days.
