Govt to form jute council: Nanak

The government will form a jute council for the development of the jute industries and the jute sector.

Textiles and Jute Minister Jahangir Kabir Nanak said this as the chief guest at the annual general meeting of Bangladesh Jute Mills Association (BJMA) at Samson H. Chowdhury Centre at Dhaka Club on Wednesday.

“Jute council will play an important role in the development of jute industries and the jute sector,” he said.

Nanak said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina directed the textiles and jute ministry to develop the jute industries as she wants the jute sector to earn huge foreign currencies. 

The government is giving all-out supports to the jute sector following the footstep of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman who worked for the development of jute sector, he said. 

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has already taken different initiatives for the development of the jute industries, he added.
