Bangladesh should explore more global markets: PM Hasina
Jan '17
Prime Minister of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina said that it is important to explore additional international markets instead of depending on a few markets of selected countries. She is also of the opinion that no country in the world can deliver products as fast as Bangladesh and that citizens of the country need adequate training and the right path.

She also urged businesspersons of the country to find markets that need Bangladeshi products, while addressing the audience at the inauguration of the 22nd Dhaka Internatinal Trade Fair (DITF).

PM Hasina said that the Bangladeshi exports should not depend on a few traditional items. They need to diversify products and maintain international standards to ensure high quality, according to a Bangladeshi news agency.

Private sector is the driving force of the country’s economy and it should carry out some welfare activities for the people of the country. They should also help develop the local market by improving the purchasing capacity of the citizens, she said.

The prime minister also handed trophies to the leading exporters of the fiscal year 2013-14 during the inauguration ceremony.

Over 580 stalls have been set up at DITF and more than 48 stalls have been occupied by international companies. Countries like India, China, Pakistan, Malaysia, Thailand, Iran, the US, Singapore, Turkey, South Korea, Nepal, Japan, Bhutan, Vietnam, Hong Kong and more are participating in the fair.

Multiple products including fabrics, carpets, jute items, sanitary products and leather items are on display at the fair. (KD)
