President of Bangladesh Chamber of Industries (BCI) Anwarul-Ul-Alam Chow-dhury Parvez has said industrialisation at regional levels is crucial to create employment for attaining sustainable national development.

“It will be very difficult to maintain the current economic growth without creating efficient entrepreneurs for establishing industries beginning with micro-, small- and medium scale ones cross the country to generate huge jobs,” he said.

The BCI Chief expressed the view at a views-exchange meeting jointly organised by BCI and Rangpur Chamber of Commerce and Industries (RCCI) at RCCI auditorium here on Saturday afternoon as main discussant.

Presided over by RCCI President Mostafa Sohrab Chowdhury Titu, Presidents, Senior Vice-presidents, Vice-presidents and Directors of ten chambers from all eight districts in Rangpur division, industrialists, entrepreneurs and journalists attended the event.

Senior Vice-president of RCCI Mostoba Hossain Ripon narrated prevailing enormous prospects and barriers for industrialisation in Rangpur division and forwarded suggestions for way-outs.

Former BCI President and former FBCCI Vice-president Mostafa Aza Chowdhury Babu said the meeting was arranged for collecting information on prevailing prospects and problems by BCI to take realistic steps for regional industrialisation.

Vice-president of BCI Preeti Chakraborty, its Directors Dewar Hossain Raja and Abul Kalam Bhuiyan spoke.

Leaders of all ten chambers of Rangpur division, leaders of other trade organisations, entrepreneurs, industrialists and journalists discussed prevailing prospects and a series of problems for industrialisation in the division.

Knowing prevailing situation in Rangpur division, the BCI President said the economy of the country has currently become dependent mainly on foreign remittance from manpower export, textile and readymade garment (RMG) and agriculture sectors.

“In developed countries, industries, especially the small-scale ones, are creating maximum employment for their sustainable economic growth and development,” he said.

However, industrialisation in Bangladesh has almost become confined in Dhaka and Chattogram regions.

“Despite achieving a laudable success in national development in the last ten years, it will not be possible to sustain the achieved success without prospect-based industrialisation at district levels to create huge jobs,” he said.

The BCI Chief said the reasons behind not flourishing of small- and medium-scale industries should be found out as such industries are creating maximum number of jobs in advanced countries for their sustainable developments.
