Dialogue between Media and Trade Personnel at Rajshahi

Economic Development Impossible Without Political Commitment

Rajshahi, November 29:
Having huge potential in Rajshahi, no agricultural industry has been established here due to the lack of political commitment.
Business and media people said it while speaking in the Dialogue on Local Economic Development and Trade Issues in a local community centre in Rajshahi today. Speakers also said, Rajshahi region is well known as agro-tank, but no initiative has yet been taken to establish agricultural industry and agro-based EPZ in this area. Even many industries have been sick due to the dearth of patronization and cooperation. For the same reason, no new industry is being established and no trade and business is expanding in this area, they added.
Speakers also said, there is huge demand of our domestic vegetables and raw materials in the market of different countries including European ones, but due to having no initiative, these resources cannot enter into the world market. Speakers strongly demanded to the Government to ensure access of these local raw materials to the world market and to establish agro-based industries in this area.
With the support of European Union, mass communication oriented development organization CCD and Economic Journalists Network (EJ Net) Rajshahi jointly organized this dialogue.

Preservation of Mango and Litchi in Northern Area Demanded

Rajshahi, December 09:
Speakers demanded establishment of cold storage for preservation of valuable crops of the country mango and litchi in the northern region. If necessary they would initiate strong movement to fulfill their demand.

Business and media people said it while speaking in the Dialogue on Local Economic Development and Trade Issues in Dinajpur Press Club today. Speakers also said, Dinajpur is well known as one of the agro-tanks in the country. Here grows mango, litchi, wheat, paddy, maize, potato etc. at large in this district. But due to the dearth of technical support, the entrepreneurs could not set up agro-based industries here. They also said, the market of rice, mango and litchi of Dinajpur is worldwide.
