“The construction work of ‘Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Industrial Area’, the largest, planned and modern industrial area on 30,000 acres of land at Mirsharai, Sonagazi and Shitakunda upazilas is progressing in full swing,” he said while unveiling the fiscal year 2019-20 (FY20) budget in the Jatiya Sangsad.

The minister said investment proposals involving US$15.1 billion have been received so far for these economic zones.

Kamal said, “To accelerate GDP growth and generate employments, we need enhanced growth in the industrial sector. This objective will be achieved by establishing economic zones across the country.”
