National Jute Day today

BSS

The National Jute Day-2018 will be observed today throughout the country amid enthusiasm with a view to making jute goods popular among the people, reports BSS. The government chalked out a weeklong programme including rally, road show, art camp, poetry festival, seminar and symposiums that began on February 27 to mark the day. On the eve of the day, President M Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina issued separate messages greeting the people of the jute sector. In their messages, they hoped that joint efforts of the government and non-government institutions will certainly be able to regain the past glory of jute.

President Hamid, in his message, said the government has taken various initiatives, including modernisation of the state owned jute mills, to bring back the glorious past of the jute sector. The Mandatory Jute Packaging Act 2010 and the Mandatory Jute Packaging Rule 2013 have been implemented to increase the domestic demand of jute, the president said, adding that the Jute Act 2017 has also been enacted in this regard.
