Prof. Santi Narayan Ghosh, Director of IQAC and BRIC welcomed all participants of workshop. He said that Bangladesh is a bit late in handling the issue. It is claimed that social, economic and political development of a nation is highly dependent on the strength and quality of tis education system. During the last 30 years one of many global policies has been the framing of a Qualification Framework with a view to achieve quality higher education. It is expected that the implementation of Qualification Framework will improve skill, and competencies of graduates, and support national development goals and internationalization agenda of the country. Prof. Santi Narayan Ghosh also indicated that during implementation some of the rules may appear to be impracticable. Sometimes certain rules need to be either modified or changed.

He discussed the concept, significance, process, implementation, five objectives and five pillars of Bangladesh National Qualification Framework (BNQF) in detail. Zaved Mannan also discussed the progress report of Improvement Plan of different POE prescribed in Self-assessment Report (SAR) conducted in 2018.
