Bangladesh observes National Jute Day
Mar '17
Bangladesh observed National Jute Day on March 6 for the first time with a view to make jute products popular amongst the people of the country. Elaborate programmes were organised on the theme 'Golden fibre, Golden country, Jute goods of Bangladesh' and discussion forums were held. A rally was also organised that started from the Chittagong Circuit House.

Speakers at the discussion held at Chittagong Circuit House praised the present government of the country for bringing back jute's golden past, according to a Bangladeshi news agency. They also called for additional steps to promote multidimensional use of jute goods.

The government is also implementing various initiatives to revive jute by boosting its production as well as demand internationally and domestically.

At a post-rally discussion held in Rangpur and organised by the directorate of jute of the ministry of jute and textiles of Bangladesh and the district administration on the occasion of the National Jute Day, the speakers said that the fibre is one of the biggest export earners for the country.

There is a rise in jute's demand internationally as it is being used as composite jute textile, in construction materials, as geo-textiles and more, according to the speakers at the discussion. They said that Bangladesh is capable of meeting this rising global demand.

Principal scientific officer of Rangpur Regional Station of Bangladesh Jute Research Institute Dr Abul Fazal Mollah said that the government has made it mandatory to transport various edible items in jute sacs to help increase jute's demand in the local market. (KD)
