Planning minister draws attention to importance of technical education

Planning Minister MA Mannan on Sunday said that the country’s own resources have increased a lot from the past, thanks to the hard work of the people.

Emphasizing better availing policy guidelines in two areas, he said agricultural mechanization will help Bangladesh become a destination for agri-products imports, and at the same time technological education needs to be bolstered to shine on the global stage.

“The resources of the country have increased a lot since the people are working hard… We have to utilize these resources,” he said.

The planning minister said this while addressing a function titled “Mujib Shotoborsho and 50 Years of Bangladesh: Celebrating UCEP Legacy” as the chief guest, held in the capital’s Mirpur area.

Mentioning that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has been working for the underprivileged and helpless people of the country, Mannan said technical education needs to be utilized properly and there is a need to impart technical education in line with the demands of time.

Noting that the era of agriculture mechanization has already started, he said efforts are on to boost export of agricultural products like fish, milk and meat since there is skilled manpower in the country.

Mannan said the development partners can change their policies from time to time, adding: “But, our prime minister is very much human and we will have to carry out the responsibilities of our own. This is our main motto.”

He said even if the development partners go away in the middle of the journey, the country will be able to go forward with its own resources.

“Our condition is much better than in the past… We will be able to move ahead with our own resources,” he added.

The planning minister said the country currently has enough capacity to implement large-scale projects, adding that the development partners should not change their policies in the middle of any development journey.

Speaking at the function, Underprivileged Children’s Educational Programs (UCEP), Bangladesh Chairperson Parveen Mahmud said the organization has been working for 49 years for underprivileged children and youths.

She said UCEP, Bangladesh has been working tirelessly to build “Sonar Bangla” as envisaged by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
