Rajibul Huq Chowdhury said, “Made in Bangladesh tag has reached a good height in the global market. In the industry, we need more research and development in order to be sustainable. The collaboration with universities will help this more. A better synchronization and partnership will surely be beneficial for both universities and corporations. With this, the corporations will also learn about the present culture of the universities and get benefit from the students came up with ideas and sustainable development.”
ASM Hafizur Rahman Nixon, Executive Direction of RH Corporation said, “These steps are for the contribution for development. CHT has most of the sustainable products, which are from fibre to garments. There will be a new product which is C2C, a biodegradable product. The students can take advantage of the lab facilities that we have in our building. We can say that our building is a mini-industry.”
“There is a big gap between the industry and the students. The printing and washing sections need more graduates for more improvement. If the students get familiarized with the latest technology, it will be also helpful for them,” he added.
Prof. Dr Muhammad Fazli Ilahi, Vice Chancellor of AUST, has said, “I have seen that foreign countries have established collaborations with universities and they are getting advantage of it. Universities are staying behind, as the industry always moves with the latest technologies. The students should all of these technologies and also keep them updated. Knowledge from courses and books is not enough. As they will serve the industry later, they need to collaborate with the industry. Hope this MoU will play a good role between AUST and RH Corporation.”
