15,000 Bangladeshis have job opportunity in UK curry industry

indexThe 3.6 billion-pound British curry industry, mostly owned and run by Bangladeshi entrepreneurs, has a shortage of some 15,000 skilled chefs and managers, said a successful restaurateur, insisting the Bangladesh government on grabbing the opportunity.

A leader of the British-Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BBCCI) has already dispatched a proposal to the British government requesting to pave the way for fulfilling the requirement of manpower shortage from Bangladesh.

“We’ve, of late, submitted a comprehensive proposal with requirement of around 15,000 jobs to the British Prime Minister.  Easing immigration rules got paramount importance in the proposal,” Enam Ali, MBE, a Bangladeshi living in Britain and director of BBCCI, told BSS in Dhaka Friday.

Ali, founder of the British Curry Awards and a true ambassador of the spice industry, has continuously been striving for change and innovation bringing British curry to places that were never even imaginable. His passion, hard work and unparalleled commitment has taken the spice industry to the attention of the world’s media today.

Born in Sylhet, he came to the United Kingdom to study law as his parents wanted him to become a lawyer. However, he instead completed a degree in Hospitality and Management. He earned a fellowship of the Royal Society of Arts.

In an exclusive interview with the news agency, the restaurateur said the proposal is very in-depth and contains lots of winnable arguments to address the crisis of manpower shortage in curry industry.

“Immigration is good for any country of the world. Flexible immigration could be beneficial for both Bangladesh and the UK governments for the sake of a win-win situation,” he mentioned quoting the proposal as saying.
