BFU holds workshop to promote B'desh jute products

The Business Facilitation Unit (BFU) held a workshop in Bangladesh intended at enhancing economic prosperity through promotion of production and ecological sustainable consumption of jute diversified products (JDP).

BFU is working under the four-year project named 'Jute: an eco-friendly alternative for a sustainable future'. The project, being undertaken by a UK-based international development charity, Traidcraft Exchange, began in 2010.

Co-financed by the European Union and being executed in association with a non-governmental organization – TARANGO, the multi-country project is being executed across Bangladesh and West Bengal in India.

Addressing the participants, Mr. William Hanna, Ambassador and Head of Delegation of the European Commission to Bangladesh, said enhanced consumption and incessant demand for new resources are badly affecting the environment. It is for this reason that the EU is promoting sustainable consumption and production of resources, he added.

The project would prove beneficial for no less than 500 small and medium enterprises (SMEs), with the BFU, a single-stop service centre, expected to help the SMEs to access market information and cash in on the opportunities, he said.

The BFU would function as a service centre for production of JDP under the SMEs and would also provide related information and updates.

Besides, it would also offer varied services to the JDP SMEs like need-based trainings, one-to-one solutions and mentoring.

The SMEs involved in production of JDP can avail these services and other facilities at nominal rate by becoming member of the BFU.
