Dr Iftikhar Ahmed has become the first-ever Bangladeshi-born Swiss lawmaker as he took oath in Parliament (Conseil Communal) of the prosperous, picturesque French-speaking Commune of Founex (Canton of Vaud), on the outskirts of Geneva on Monday, reports UNB.  Iftikhar, who has been living in Switzerland for last 40 years, is a development economist having worked at the International Labour Office (ILO) in Geneva during three decades (1974-2004).
He also served as the editor-in-chief of the International Labour Review and director of the ILO’s Bureau of Publications, according to a message received here on Tuesday. His other ILO assignments included action research coordinator at ILO’s International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC) and director of the ILO Office in Jakarta, Indonesia.
