Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday asked the business community to take necessary preparations for the possible challenges they will face due to the graduation of Bangladesh as a developing country.
“We may face many challenges here. But we’re always ready to face the challenges… We, the Awami League government, have taken the preparations. I would like to ask the business community to take preparations properly,” she said.
The Prime Minister said this while inaugurating the 16-day gala celebration, arranged by the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI), on the occasion of the Golden Jubilee of the country’s independence.
She virtually opened the grand celebration programme at the Amphitheatre adjacent to Hatirjheel, from her official residence Ganobhaban in the evening.
Sheikh Hasina said now Bangladesh has won the status of a developing country. “As a developing country, we’ll get many scopes to take the country forward further,” she said.
Describing the AL government as a business-friendly one, she said her government has not come to do business but creates all sorts of scopes for the business community to expand businesses and thus generate jobs for the socioeconomic development of people.
