HSBC Bangladesh and the International Chamber of Commerce Bangladesh have jointly launched a trade knowledge and network building platform, ICC Knowledge Centre.

The knowledge centre will provide professionals of Bangladesh with an access to online resources, insights and trade related articles, researches and up to date trade information, HSBC said in a statement yesterday.

It will be gradually developed to include training sessions, seminars, knowledge events and roadshows, according to the statement.
A memorandum of association was signed between the bank and the trade body recently.

In global and free-market trade, capability of following rules and access to market information is critical to safeguard trade interests, and the knowledge centre will help towards that, said Mahbubur Rahman, president of ICC Bangladesh.

“Bangladesh’s trade outlook is very positive and it is therefore crucial to provide exporters with the means to develop their knowledge of global trade practices,??? said James Emmett, HSBC’s global head for trade and receivables finance.

“Throughout our history we have been where the growth is, connecting customers to opportunities,??? said Andrew Tilke, CEO of HSBC Bangladesh.

HSBC and ICC are bringing the knowledge centre to life to remain fully consistent with the purpose, he said.
