Team from Wales arrives in Dhaka Sunday
A 25-member business delegation from Wales will arrive in Dhaka on Sunday to boost business relations between Wales and Bangladesh in the fields of knowledge businesses and knowledge transfer.
Organised by the Wales Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce (WBCC), the trade mission of the country under the United Kingdom will reach Bangladesh to introduce leading Welsh companies to the local business community.
Members from the University of South Wales and leading science centre TechniQuest are included in the delegation, the British High Commission in Dhaka said in a statement yesterday.
The delegation will visit Dhaka, Sylhet and Chittagong during their eight-day stay in Bangladesh and meet with government ministers and top officials of the commerce and education ministries and chamber leaders, according to the statement.
“Wales and the UK are world leaders in many knowledge-based fields and I'm certain that exciting future collaboration will emerge as a part of this mission,” said British High Commissioner Robert Gibson.
The mission takes place after the successful first official Welsh government trade mission to Bangladesh organised by the WBCC in 2011.
The chamber is also keen to assist Bangladesh and Wales to start developing bilateral trade and political relationships.
