The prime minister reached the world court and arranged for the garment industry to earn foreign money through the creation of garments for the economic development of Bangladesh. Now this government is working to introduce jute products to the world market.

He said these things in an exchange meeting with stakeholders related to the jute sector in the auditorium of Faridpur District Children’s Academy on Saturday (June 8) at noon.

Meanwhile, the minister said, we have to go around making products from jute. Bangabandhu came from Faridpur to find out the solution to the problem of jute cultivation. High quality jute is produced in Faridpur. We will arrange how to wake up jute in a short time in a small place. In the future, work with farmers on jute cultivation and multipurpose use of jute through village yard meetings.

He also said that the officials of the Jute Research Center have been asked to work on the production of improved varieties of jute and seeds. An initiative has been taken to use jute bags as an alternative to polythene in the market. About 75 percent of jute seeds have to be imported. In the future, everyone will have to work to become self-sufficient in jute seeds.
