CARE Bangladesh, a humanitarian association, organised Jute Product Fair- 2016 to promote jute-based handloom industries in the country. Speakers at the fair were of the opinion that it is imperative to provide training and inspire small-scale entrepreneurs in order to encourage the industry for enhancing production of diversified jute products.
About twenty-four manufacturing enterprises from all over Bangladesh displayed their eco-friendly products at the fair. The three-day fair organised under the SWITCH-Asia Jute Value Project 'Jute Diversified Products' received financial cooperation from the European Union, according to a Bangladeshi news agency.
The project's activities in reviving past glory of the eco-friendly jute fibre were lauded by the speakers at the fair. It helps promote jute-based handloom industries for increasing diversified use, meet demand and export jute products to international markets.
Flourishing local small and medium scale enterprises and jute-based cottage industries should enhance production of diversified jute products and promote marketing facilities to accelerate national development, said Sadar Upazila cooperative officer Farid Uddin Sarker.
SME representative Masudur Rahman emphasised that providing capital, training and latest technologies to local entrepreneurs is important for producing good quality jute products and creating job opportunities.
Meher Hossain, a representative of Jute Diversification Promotion Centre stressed on the need to encourage unemployed young women and women entrepreneurs to set up jute-based cottage and handloom ventures for the expansion of local jute-based industries. (KD)
