Gloden Fibre – Jute set to get its shine back

Feb '08
Although Bangladesh is the world's largest exporter of jute and its products, presently it is facing stiff competition with the synthetic products. Due to continuous loss in the traditional jute manufacturing sector, the Government is providing a huge amount of subsidy every year.

To bring back the lost shine of the 'Golden Fibre' a 10 day training programme was conducted which ended on January 31. The sessions were organized by Jute Diversification Promotion Centre (JDPC) in Rangpur, one of the major cities in Bangladesh. The course was organized under the Small Scale Entrepreneurship Development Project in Promoting Textile-oriented Jute Products which was inaugurated by Chairman of Kholeya UP Faruk Hossain.

The training was for the unemployed women on jute-based handloom and collage industries. JDPC has been providing all necessary assistance to the local entrepreneurs for setting up of jute-based industries including cottage and handloom industries.

To revive the small scale and cottage industry, the sector is now coming up with fashionable, eco-friendly products that are slowly attracting attention of the people. Shopping bags, blankets, carpets, footwear, wall pieces are some of the few products which have started making its presence felt.
