Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi on Saturday urged the local entrepreneurs of plastic goods to seize the opportunities of grabbing the local and global market by ensuring the quality of products.
He made the remarks while addressing a function marking the inauguration of the new campus of the Bangladesh Institute of Plastic Engineering and Technology (BIPET) at the Pangaon Container Port Road in Dakshin Keraniganj, said a ministry press release.
Tipu Munshi said, “Plastic industry is a potential sector in Bangladesh. There is a huge market of plastic products across the globe. We’ll have to grab that market by ensuring the quality of products, design, and skills.”
The demand of plastic products is increasing day by day and we’ll have to seize this opportunity, the minister emphasized, he added.
Mentioning that the government of Sheikh Hasina has been extending all necessary support for the development of this plastic sector, Tipu said the businessmen would also have to come forward to this end and thus groom them to meet the global demand of plastic products.
“There is no alternative to gaining skills to survive in the competition. I believe that this institute will play an important role in building skilled manpower. All concerned need to play their responsible role for turning plastic products as important export items like RMG,” he said.
Association vice president Gias Uddin Ahmed, former presidents Shamim Ahmed, SM Kamal Uddin, and Pran-RFL Group Chairman Ahsan Chowdhury, spoke among others, on the occasion.
