PM’s directive

PM’s directive

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina while addressing the 5th meeting of Fast Track Project Monitoring Committee at her office in the capital on Sunday   stressed the necessity of bringing more important projects under the watch of the Fast-Track Monitoring Committee alongside the existing 10 fast-track projects.The fast-track projects are: Padma Multipurpose Bridge Construction Project, Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant Project, Maitree Super Thermal Power Project at Rampal, Moheshkhali-Matarbari Integrated Infrastructure Development Project, Dhaka Mass Transit Development Project (under jurisdiction of line 1, 5, and 6), Construction of LNG Terminal and Gas Pipe Line Project, Deep Seaport Construction Project, Paira Deep Seaport Project, Padma Bridge Railway Link Project and Dohazari-Cox’s Bazar-Gundhum Railway Line Project. Initiatives to implement mega-projects indicate that the country is heading towards development. Doubt had surfaced regarding construction of the Padma Bridge with the domestic fund but the satisfactory progress in construction of the same testifies to the government’s firm commitment to development of the country.

It is heartening that the country has made commendable progress on human development. There are bright chances for robust private investment, increased exports and remittance inflows. Remarkable progress has been made in reducing poverty and creating opportunities for the citizens. However, there is no room for expressing complacency. For achieving its growth aspirations, Bangladesh requires to create more and better jobs by boosting private investment, diversifying exports and building human capital. There are a number of tasks to be addressed with a view to achieving the goals. They are eradication of poverty, addressing climate change issue and economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The goals are interconnected – often the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another.

Efforts should be made by the government, private sector, civil society and citizens alike to make sure we leave a better planet for future generations. Emphasis should be given on various issues related to formulating policy and planning for exploration and the best uses of the existing potentialities in the country for successfully achieving the goals. Private sector can play a crucial role in this regard. There is no alternative to   exploring the existing potentialities for improving living and livelihood condition of people. The present government has success stories in various sectors. Concentrated government efforts are the demand of the time.
