Textiles and Jute Minister Jahangir Kabir Nanak on Monday (4 March) said the jute sector would be transformed radically to increase the export of eco-friendly products.

Export of jute and jute products would immensely help strengthen the national economy, he said while addressing a seminar ‘Possibilities, Obstacles and Actions in Production and Marketing of Jute Products.

Bangladesh Jute Mills Corporation (BJMC) organized the seminar marking the National Jute Day at the BJMC auditorium here.
Mirza Azam, MP, addressed the seminar as a special guest while Textiles and Jute Secretary Md Abdur Rouf was in the chair.

President of Bangladesh Jute Mills Association (BJMA) Md Abul Hossain and Bangladesh Multipurpose Jute Manufacturers and Exporters Association president Md Rashedul Karim Munna presented two keynote papers on the jute industry and its prospects.

The textile minister laid importance on the diversification of jute products and attractive designs to attract buyers as Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has been providing all-out support in this regard.

He urged everyone linked with jute production to work together to increase the export abroad saying the government will encourage the private sector for the development of the jute industries.
