Last week the ambassador of Bangladesh, Mr Sheikh Mohammed Belal, visited Braveheart Marine in Urk. Braveheart Marine took the initiative to exchange knowledge in the field of water management after several visits to Bangladesh.
The exchange of knowledge is done in cooperation with the Dutch Embassy in Dhaka, the Netherlands Enterprise Agency and several (government) organizations in Bangladesh.
According to the director of Braveheart Marine, Jelle Hakvoort, the ambassador was fascinated by his visit to Urk. He was excited about the opportunities to share knowledge in the field of water management. Every year Bangladesh has to deal with major flooding, this has a great influence on the daily lives of the Bangladeshi. Braveheart Marine is able to provide hydrographic knowledge to improve this. The many waterways can be routed in a proper way by using hydrography.
