Ambassadors' Reports

Dr. S M Nazmul Alam:

As GHI Ambassador to Bangladesh, I have been disseminating information about GHI objectives and activities to colleagues, scientific peers, events, regulatory authorities, seafood industry association, and relevant stakeholders in Bangladesh to help harmonize standards and regulations.

I have been involved in GHI Working Groups on Regulatory Aspects of Reducing Postharvest Losses as well as communicating my research outcome related to seafood food safety and quality management at GHI sessions in International Conferences and Congresses and contribute to GHI books.


Dr. S M Nazmul Alam, GHI Ambassador to Bangladesh, gave a talk about “The importance of global harmonization of regulations for shrimp” at the 18th IUFoST World Congress of Food Science and Technology, 21 – 25 August 2016. Dublin, Ireland.


Dr. Md. Sazedul Hoqu:

  • Share/disseminate the international food safety information to the national or regional level.
  • Report/share the local food safety scenario in the GHI or other international platform.
  • Dialogue with national policy maker for harmonization of international food safety laws and legislations.
  • Translate International food safety documents to local languages. (recently made)
  • Bangladesh is a highly dense populated developing country containing with limited food production and inadequate facilities for proper food handling, transportation, storage, safety aspect, quality control and risk analysis which is public health concern. Post-harvest handling, nutrition and health, chemical-physical and microbiological food hazard/contaminants, value-chain system, safety and quality aspect of food are public health concern in Bangladesh. Thus with GHI, I could contribute in publishing the book chapter magazine, journals or other related documents; Participate and share knowledge and information in ambassador’s meeting; Actively participate in different working group (WG) activities; Updating the food national/regional food safety laws and legislation.
