Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said that the development of the country is possible because of the continuity of the government. Although the pace of development has slowed down due to the epidemic, the country has not stopped, the country is moving forward.

On Thursday morning, the Prime Minister inaugurated the newly constructed ‘Bangabandhu Bangladesh-China Friendship Exhibition Center’ in Purbachal through a video conference.

The Prime Minister hoped that the best use of the center would be ensured by organizing export fairs, trade fairs, exporters’ conferences, buyer-seller fairs and other trade promotion activities.

The head of government said the exhibition center would be used as a permanent venue for various product-based fairs throughout the year. From now on, Dhaka International Trade Fair will be held here on a permanent platform.

In 2015, the government allotted 20 acres of land in favor of the Export Development Bureau in RAJUK’s Purbachal, and later another 8.1 acres. The construction of this spacious exhibition center with all kinds of modern facilities has been completed there with the project assistance of the Chinese government.

The total cost of construction of this center including the value of land is Tk. 617 crore. Of this, the Chinese government has spent Tk 528 crore.

Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi, Commerce Secretary Tapan Kanti Ghosh and Chinese Ambassador to Bangladesh Li Jimming addressed the inaugural function.
