The Bangladeshi workforce in the country and abroad should work in cohesion and coordination to achieve a two-digit growth rate, Salman F Rahman, private industry and investment affairs advisor to the prime minister, said yesterday.
He was speaking at a program of expatriate engineers organised at a city hotel. Over 300 Bangladeshi engineers working in 30 countries took part in the program. During his speech, Rahman brought to the fore the current economic and financial condition of the country.
To achieve a consistent two-digit growth rate, the local workforce should combine the expertise and knowledge imparted by the expatriate Bangladeshis. Terming the program a ‘success’, Salman F Rahman said similar programs will be organised in future to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and expertise between the Bangladeshis working at home and abroad
