In association with the Bangladesh Cotton Association and Bangladesh Textile Mills Association, the ICA recently visited Bangladesh to deliver training and establish safe trading networks.
Robert Jiang (ICA Business Operations and Development Manager) and David Wookey (Sterling Cotton Limited) delivered a two day Trade Matters training course to roughly 40 delegates.
The training was aimed at promoting the contract sanctity, Bylaws & Rules, quality and testing, resolution of disputes, safe trading, members’ rights, protection and influence. It also covered matters of concern by the textile industry including spinnability and value addition. The format consisted of module delivery, workshop exam, arbitrator’s exam and forum discussions.
Casandra German (ICA Safe Trading Officer) was also on the trip, liaising with local firms to establish safe trading networks.
