Former British prime minister, David Cameron, during his short visit to Bangladesh last week, visited a readymade garments factory that is partnered with Sudokkho.
Mr Cameron went to Urmi Garments Ltd in Tejgaon, Dhaka on 27 April 2017 to see one of Sudokkho’s industry-based training projects. Sudokkho provides technical assistance to develop the in-factory training system and assists in building capacity of the factory personnel to implement this training system so that workers can be trained as per the factory’s needs.
He spoke with the management of Sudokkho and Urmi, discussing industry-based skills and employment programme. Later he went to one of the production floors and the in-factory training centre. He expressed his appreciation of this innovative training approach that Sudokkho is implementing.
Mr Cameron served as the prime minister of Britain from 2010-2016. He is currently holding the post of chairman of International Growth Centre (IGC), a UK-based organisation working in promoting sustainable growth in developing countries by providing demand-led policy advice based on frontier research. At the end of his official visit, he has expressed firm optimism that the bilateral relations between the United Kingdom and Bangladesh would continue to grow.
