He was addressing a discussion meeting marking “Sheikh Russel Day 2021” at Petrobangla in the city.
The state minister also advised the officials to accelerate hydrocarbon exploration and production in the country.
He said Bangladesh has been able to create a positive image abroad under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
The function, held with senior secretary of the energy division Anisur Rahman in the chair, was also addressed by Bangladesh Petroleum Corporation (BPC) Chairman ABM Azad and Petrobangla Chairman AMB Abdul Fattah.
