BANGLADESH is keen on sending engineering professionals to Qatar to help the country meet its manpower needs for the upcoming projects associated with World Cup 2022 and Qatar National Vision 2030, according to the Ambassador of Bangladesh to Qatar HE Ashud Ahmed.
Speaking at the celebration of 68th Engineer’s Day 2016 organised by the Qatar Chapter of Institution of Engineers Bangladesh (IEB) at Diplomatic Club on Friday, Ahmed said:”It is a matter of pride for us to acknowledge the commitment and dedication of Bangladeshi engineers to their jobs and their contribution to the development of the host nation Qatar and Bangladesh.”
He added,”I am particularly glad to see active participation of the members of IEB Qatar in organising various programmes from time-to-time to hone the professional acumen of our Bangladeshi engineers especially the younger lot.”
Representing the Qatari fraternity of engineers, Ibrahim Mohammed al Sada, manager, District Cooling Services of Kahramaa in his address acknowledged the dedication of the Bangladeshi engineers and their contribution in the service of employees. He advised the younger engineers to use their engineering skills to find solutions to our immediate day-to-day problems.
Chairman of IEB, Qatar Chapter, Abdullah al Mamoon, recounted the achievements of the IEB-Qatar since the last year’s celebration of Engineers’ Day. The souvenir to mark the occasion was also launched during the event.
“Bangladeshi engineers are well known for their professionalism. I am glad possibilities are being explored at the governmental level between Qatar and Bangladesh to bring more professionals from various fields,” Mamoon said.
“This step will help bring in skilled and professional Bangladeshi workers to Qatar and change the image of Bangladesh as mainly a supplier of unskilled labour in future. Besides, it will benefit Bangladesh financially in terms of remittances,” he added.
The second part of the meeting consisted of technical seminar in which Prof Dr Anwarul Hasan from the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Qatar University introduced the audience to the relatively newer field of biomedical engineering by throwing light on its application in the field of medicine and biology for healthcare purposes.
The event also featured fun activities for children and a raffle draw. The winner of the raffle draw got a return airfare of Doha-Dhaka flight sponsored by Jet Airways
