ITEC Day celebrated in Bangladesh

The High Commission of India celebrated the 57th Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation (ITEC) day in Dhaka on Thursday.

 

Deputy Minister for Education of Bangladesh Mohibul Hasan Chowdhoury attended the event as the Chief Guest of the event hosted by the High Commissioner of India to Bangladesh Vikram Doraiswami. Around 100 ITEC alumni from all walks of life along with the distinguished guests took part in the event which was organised on a limited scale considering the ongoing pandemic situation in the country, said a press release of the High Commission of India.

ITEC is a flagship programme of the Government of India. It was established in 1964 to offer the benefit of India’s development experience and appropriate technologies to the developing countries.

Every year, more than 10,000 training slots are offered to 161 partner countries for training courses in various areas like Accounts, Audit, Management, SME, Rural Development and Parliamentary Affair.

More than 4,000 young Bangladeshi professionals have undergone these specialized short and medium term courses in India under the ITEC programme since 2007. Last year, due to COVID-19 pandemic, a number of courses were organised virtually under e-ITEC. These programs covered themes such as women-centric program, covid management, Good Governance Practices, Data analytics, Remote sensing, Adult Hepatology in premier Indian Institutes among others.

The training programme provides an opportunity to share best Indian practices with the brightest minds in Bangladesh. As a result, India has been an equal beneficiary, learning especially from the developmental experiences of Bangladesh which is making phenomenal strides both in Economic and Social development, said the press release.
