Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina Sunday inaugurated the development activities of 10 more economic zones in the country through a video conference from a function in Dhaka's Bangabandhu International Conference Centre (BICC) on Sunday, the Bangladesh media has reported.

They are Mirersarai Economic Zone, Sabrang Tourism Park, Srihatta Economic Zone, Mongla Economic Zone, AK Khan Economic Zone, Abdul Monem Economic Zone, Meghna Economic Zone, Meghna Industrial Economic Zone, Bay Economic Zone and Amra Economic Zone.

She also sought cooperation of the local people to set up the zones fast for building a prosperous Bangladesh and said her government plans to set up 100 economic zones across the country.

"I would like to urge local people to extend cooperation so that the investors could build the [economic] zones in a faster pace and 'beautiful atmosphere', and that would help establish a hunger and poverty-free prosperous Bangladesh," she said.

With the economic zones, the PM said, the living standard of the people would improve as those will generate employment, alleviate poverty and infuse dynamism into the economy.

"We don't want to do business, rather we want to create scope for the businesspeople as we want [rapid] development of the country," the PM said.

She also called upon local and foreign entrepreneurs to come forward to invest in the country's economic zones.

Hasina assured investors of all kinds of support for setting up more such zones here so that Bangladesh becomes a higher middle income country by 2021.

The PM urged all concerned to keep environmental issues in mind while setting up mills and factories in the economic zones.

"You will have to remain alert so that industry wastes are not dumped in the river or farmlands ... you will have to set up ETP or STP, wherever they are necessary," she said. (SH)
