The Bangladeshi Ambassador Visits JU

The Bangladeshi Ambassador to Ethiopia H.E Mr. Monirul Islam visited JU on 27th October, 2018. On his arrival to JU he was warmly welcomed by Mr. Kora Tushune, V/P for Business and Development and Mr. Ermyas Admasu, Director of International Relations.  The Ambassador in his remarks clearly expressed the possibility of creating linkages between Jimma University and Bangladeshi educational institutions where he suggested fostering partnership in the areas of joint academic research, staff and student exchange. Moreover, he highlighted the huge potential of the textile industry and how huge number of population in Bangladesh was uplifted from poverty due to the efficient management of the industry to create employment opportunity for the youth with short term tailored trainings to enhance their capacity to involve in the industry. He further explained the potential possessed by Ethiopia to expand the textile industry and emphasized that lessons can be drawn from development trajectories of Bangladesh which has recently graduated  to a middle income country.

Mr. Kora on his part stated that JU is open to work with any institution in any part of the world committed to quality education, research and create impact in a society as the most cherished values of his institution. The past few years, according to him, JU is expanding the horizon of its partnership to East and South East Asia and the visit of H.E Mr. Monirul is a wonderful opportunity to explore further opportunities to work with educational and research institutions in Bangladesh.  He further reiterated the strength of the textile industry in Bangladesh, its impact in achieving economic development and reduce poverty. Definitely, Ethiopia may have to learn a lot from Bangladeshi in making a good use of its potential in the textile sector.  Exchange of knowledge through educational and research partnerships among universities of the two nations, promoting investment and transferring technologies will have to be the major areas of emphasis for future collaboration and he pledged that JU is committed to realize the same.
