Reopening of jute mills will generate employment – Minister

Mar '10
Dr Hasan Mahmud, State Minister for Environment and Forest, stated that reopening of the closed jute mills would benefit the economy. It will also generate employment while salvaging the country from environmental pollution.

Lesser quantity of fertilizers and pesticides are used in growing jute and this makes it eco-friendly. Also the products made out of jute, owing to their pro-environment nature are easily perishable, Dr. Hasan stated while conversing with Director of the World Bank (WB) for South Asia, Pulack Chhatarjee, at his office.

He also added that, owing to the eco-friendly nature of jute, a hike has been noticed in its demand across the globe.

Pulack Chhatarjee, World Bank's in charge of Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Bhutan, Maldives and Sri Lanka assured Dr. Hassan that he will look into the matter and added that the World Bank would shortly initiate efforts with regards to the same.
