ILO trains 150 potential entrepreneurs
The International Labour Organisation completed training of 150 people in business ideas to help them launch their own ventures soon.
The ILO trained the potential entrepreneurs in collaboration with Bangladesh Employers Federation or BEF, and the two organisations awarded certificates to the trainees in Dhaka on Thursday.
The training was meant to generate new business ideas under ILO's Start and Improve Your Business (SIYB) course.
It was supported by ILO's Bangladesh Skills for Employment and Productivity project funded by Canada, the ILO said in a statement.
In addition to the 150 new entrepreneurs, 16 local trainers were trained by the Sri Lanka SIYB Association.
A pool of 100 trained and qualified SIYB trainers will be created in the coming months, according to the statement.
