Akij Jute grabs National Export award

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina recently presented, Sheikh Nasiruddin, Chairman of Akij Group with the prestigious National Export Award. It is for the sixth time in a row that the group which is a leading jute thread manufacturer has claimed the award.

A statement released by the company read that, the company each day produces 150 tons of quality jute threads and exports it to over 30 countries across the globe, while bringing in $2.5 million to the country's economy, every month. But for the current year a higher monthly target has been set of making $3.5 million.

Sheikh Nasiruddin, believes that if the state-owned mills like private mills, too, adapt features like honesty, hard-work, determination, state-of-the-art technology and most of all effective management, then it may be possible for them to transform in to profit making organizations.

If this thought materializes, then the country could move a step further towards economic empowerment, with jute industry regaining its long lost golden glory. As Bangladeshi government attains its digital nation dream, alongside, the unemployment conditions prevailing in the country too may see an end.

Mr. Sheikh Nasir Uddin, made the first move towards enhancement of country's jute industry, when, in 1997, he initiated with just 500 workers and daily production of 1500 tons of jute thread. But, within a decade he generated employment opportunities for over 5,000 employees, with his persistent efforts, firm determination and patience.
