On the eve of celebrations of Mujib Year, Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on Monday officially launched a Human Resources Management Software at the Ministry.
The launching ceremony was also attended by State Minister for Foreign Affairs M Shahriar Alam, Foreign Secretary Masud Bin Momen and senior officials of the Ministry.
Paying rich tribute to the memories of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the Foreign Minister said that one of the dreams of the Father of the Nation was to ensure good governance through creation of a professional pool of civil servants.
Digitization of the service records of all officials of the Ministry will be a step towards materializing the dream, he said.
The Foreign Minister also announced that officials of the Ministry and Bangladesh Missions abroad will contribute their one day’s salary to the Prime Minister’s Fund to build houses for homeless people in the Mujib Year.
In order to contribute to sustainable development goals of the government, the Foreign Ministry officials will, from now on, use eco-friendly food grade water bottles instead of disposable plastic bottles in all official programs.
