Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday asked the business community to diversify their products and explore new markets in the world for their items availing of government support.
“We must diversify our export products,” she said, adding, “You must think how to bring as much variety as you can in your export basket,” she said.
The Prime Minister said this while inaugurating the ‘Destination Bangladesh: Gateway to growth and Development’ organised by Dhaka Chamber of Commerce & Industry (DCCI) to celebrate its 60th years of founding at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre here.
Sheikh Hasina said the business community needs to come out from the traditional mindset of reaching only one or two destinations for their products. “Now markets are there in many countries. We have to look at those destinations, we have to find out which country wants what type of products, and we have to go for producing those items.”
She said the industrialisation has to follow the demand of a certain area. “You have to look out for the products that produced in a particular area, and the demand of the product also has to be in the consideration.”
The Prime Minister said the government will do whatever is needed for taking the country forward. “For flourishing the trade and commerce, we’ll do whatever is needed.”
