Stress on flourishing jute textile, light engineering sector

RANGPUR: Industrialists have stressed on flourishing the jute textile and light engineering sector to create huge employments for accelerating economic development in the northwestern region, reports BSS.

They made the view at the meeting on the ‘Securing Employment and Economic Development around Jute Textile and Light Engineering Sector in North-west Bangladesh’ project held at meeting room of Rangpur Chamber of Commerce and Industry (RCCI) here recently.

International development organisation Practical Action Bangladesh (PAB) with assistance of the European Union and RCCI organised the event for members of Board of Directors of RCCI, industrialists and entrepreneurs for realisation of the project.

In the beginning, Agricultural and Jute Specialist of PAB Alamgir Chowdhury delivered PowerPoint presentation on prospects of the Jute Textile and Light Engineering Industry in the meeting moderated by PAB Officer Protima Dutta.

RCCI President Sohrab Chowdhury Titu said, “There is no alternative to establishing eco-friendly industries for sustainable economic advancement to implement the Vision 2021 and Vision 2041 and achieve the sustainable development goals (SDGs).”

“At the present global context, a brighter prospect is prevailing for Bangladesh to fetch huge foreign currency through exporting raw jute and jute products to many countries having mammoth demand of these eco-friendly products,” he said.
