Saying the government is always on the side of entrepreneurs, State Minister for Foreign Affairs Md Shahriar Alam urged them to do something special and extraordinary.
There is no country in the world where the government can provide jobs to everyone. And it is not even possible.
Shahriar Alam was speaking at the inauguration of a Common Facility Center (CFC) for the development of the footwear industry at Kaluhati in Rajshahi’s Charghat upazila this afternoon as the chief guest.
Now, a young entrepreneur can do a lot if s/he tries. Lots of opportunities have been created at present time, so if anyone wants to earn, it’s very possible.
Besides, the government is always on the side of entrepreneurs. The Prime Minister has directed every ministry to cooperate in this regard, the junior minister added.
He said that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina always said, “You should not run after a job, rather develop yourself as an entrepreneur.”
Bangladesh’s agriculture is going to be one of the biggest tools of business in the future and agricultural products will occupy a large part of our business, so we have to take initiative in the agricultural sector, Shahriar Alam said.
He also advised business people to make prompt and innovative decisions.
Stating he is always aware of the problems of the entrepreneurs of footwear industry in Kaluhati, he said, “you will always find me by your side on your tough days.”
