Streamline surveys, planning minister directs BBS

BSS, Dhaka

Planning Minister MA Mannan yesterday directed the Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) to further streamline its surveys to be carried out nationally in the next couple of years ensuring optimum utilization of its resources.

“There is a need to streamline the surveys to be carried out nationally by the BBS,” he said.

The Planning Minister said this while unveiling the cover of initial report of the Country’s 3rd Handloom Census styled ‘Handloom Census 2018′ held at the Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) auditorium in the capital.

Chaired by BBS Director General Dr Krishna Gain, Statistics and Informatics Division Secretary Saurendra Nath Chakrabhartty spoke as special guest. Director of Census Wing of BBS M Zahidul Haque Sardar gave the address of welcome at the function.

Handloom Census Project Director Mohiuddin Ahmed made a power-point presentation on various aspects of the project and survey findings.

Mannan suggested the BBS to have a concrete list of surveys to be conducted nationally over the next few years as well as publishing those in time.

Underscoring the need for checking misuse of resources in carrying out those, he said, “We should reduce cost, but we must incur all necessary costs which are practical.”

Mentioning that the government gives due priority on the operations of the BBS considering the growing economy of the country, Mannan said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina also wants that the standard of country’s official statistics is further developed and enriched.

Noting that the squeezing and declining trend of handloom factories and units across the country is not a matter of ’emotion’, the Planning Minister said rather it was due to the growing trend of mechanization.

Statistics and Informatics Division Secretary said the survey showed that the handloom workers are gradually changing their profession over the years and there is a need to protect this handloom industry since there is a widespread demand of ‘taat sarees.’ among the country’s women.
