Govt strives to reopen all closed jute mills

The Bangladesh government is all set to restart the operations of two more closed jute mills, Daulatpur Jute Mill at Khalishpur in Khulna and Kawmi Jute Mill in Sirajganj. Re-opening of these two jute mills will allow around 5,000 workers to get back their jobs.

The recommencement of these two mills requires around Tk 1.36 billion of fund; hence this resumption will be exercised after the approval of Finance Ministry.

Currently, out of 27 jute mills, under Bangladesh Jute Mills Corporation (BJMC), 16 are operating. The government is taking measures to restart all the closed mills in phases across the country.

Khulna People's Jute Mills will resume its functions by February and will be managed by BJMC. Meanwhile, a 19-member commission, headed by the eminent economist Dr Kholiquzzaman Ahmad, has been formed by the government to create an appropriate jute policy.

Besides, it has also taken measures for global campaign to promote jute as a natural fibre, since the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN had announced 2009 as the 'International Year of Natural Fibres'.

Moreover, the government of Bangladesh is making it obligatory to use jute in goods packaging. During ongoing year, around 600 tons of jute goods were produced in Bangladesh jute mills, which is around two times the output of the past year.

Jute and jute goods, produced in the country, are shipped to about 100 countries across the globe such as Sudan, Egypt, Iran, Syria, UAE, Australia, New Zealand, USA, European countries, India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, China and Thailand.
