Dhaka, July 19 (UNB) — Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Friday urged everyone to work together to build a great future for the nation.
“Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina envisioned Bangladesh as a middle-income country by 2021 and as a developed nation by 2041. We all need to work together to achieve this future,” he said at the 6th anniversary celebration of English-language daily Dhaka Tribune at a city hotel.
“We’re already on the way,” he said, adding that Bangladesh has become a food-exporter from a food-starved country.
He noted how people are more affluent compared to the past and remote villages are now under electricity coverage. “So we take it on from here to become an esteemed nation,” he said.
Minister Mahmud said the media is an integral part of development and assured that the government is working for the welfare and expansion of media.
