While addressing as chief guest Siddiqur Rahman said that we have lots of public and private universities in the country and a large number of graduates are passing out from those universities but industries don't get properly skilled manpower equipped with   quality education as they required. The reason behind this is that there is no collaboration with industry and academy. That is why in spite of huge number of graduates, the industry cannot find their required skilled person. It's very necessary to bring change on course curriculum to overcome the present scenario. In the mean time he thanked to Daffodil International University authority for arranging such workshop titled 'Development of Outcome Based Curriculum'.  
BGMEA president urged the students to build career in garments sectors as there prevails immense opportunity as it's a thrust sector and Bangladesh is leading in this sector. To uphold this situation in coming days, he underscored the need of necessary development and modification of the present course curriculum.   
Dr Md. Sabur Khan in his presidential address said that Daffodil International University is doing various activities to change the course curriculum and make the course curriculum time befitting. Today's work is one of the Endeavours of those activities. DIU regularly organizes industry academia lecture series where successful entrepreneurs share their knowledge and experiences among the students. DIU helps the entrepreneurship minded students through providing Venture Capital facilities. DIU has introduced Department of Entrepreneurship, he added.  
Dr Md. Sabur Khan also said that a lot of foreign officers are working in garments sector of Bangladesh who sends huge amount of remittance to their native country just only utilizing their technological knowledge and expertise. Because we have not such level of expert people like them due to lack of developed course curriculum, he added.
