Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said local entrepreneurs can invest abroad in the production of fertilizer.
She gave the directive at a meeting of Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (ECNEC) on Tuesday (January 25).
Planning Minister MA Mannan briefed reporters after the meeting chaired by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
Highlighting the PM’s speech, the planning minister said, “We have a demand of fertilizer. But when we go for its production, we face gas crisis. Local entrepreneurs can invest abroad by establishing factory for producing fertilizer and that fertilizer can be used in our country. The fertilizer produced abroad can meet the demand of Bangladesh, reducing gas crisis in the country. Local entrepreneurs can even use that fertilizer in overseas countries which will augment the foreign investment.”
The prime minister urged the local entrepreneurs to ensure the interests of the country first of all, Mannan said.
