Swedish Ambassador to Bangladesh Charlotta Schlyter has applauded the international research organisation ICDDRB for its contribution to the health sector in Bangladesh. She commended ICDDRB during her visit to some Uppsalla University masters’ students at the research institution on Monday. The students have spent the last 10 days at the Technical Training Unit of the organisation as part of their fieldwork on infectious disease. Later, a certificate distribution ceremony was held where Ambassador, HE Charlotta Schlyter, herself a graduate of Upsalla University, attended as the chief guest. Ambassador Schlyter said the initiative is a wonderful example of collaboration between Bangladesh and Sweden. Economic Relations Division Additional Secretary Sultana Afroz also attended the programme as a special guest.
