University of Bradford Alumni: Dhaka, Bangladesh

Dr John Lawler (Bradford Centre for International Development) and Dr Hamish Main (University of Bradford, International Regional Manager) attended a meeting of Bradford Alumni in Bangladesh, held in February at the Cadet College Club, Gulshan, Dhaka. The meeting was coordinated by Mr Atique Rabbani (the University's Agent in Bangladesh and a Bradford Alumnus) who also attended (and sang!).

Three non-alumni joined the meeting: Mr Shahjahan Ali Mollah (Additional Sec.,MOPA), Mr Iqbal Abdullah Harun, (Director of Training, DMTBF Project), Mr Tomas Doherty (British Council). After a formal welcome from Prof Fazli Ilahi (Bradford PhD 1972) who chaired the meeting, the proceedings were largely informal. The evening provided the chance to meet other Alumni, to renew acquaintances and to share experiences and reminiscences of Bradford. The evening included a meal together and songs and music from various alumni. There were several ideas about how the alumni group might progress and particular interest in developing the group on a more formalised basis. A further meeting is being co-ordinated by Atique of those wishing to be involved in making further plans.
