The ruling Awami League is going to get a central office 69 years following its founding. 

The 10-storey modern building, financed by the contributions of party leaders and activists, will be inaugurated on June 23—the founding anniversary of the party. The construction cost of the building was Tk15 crore, sources said.

The new Awami League central office will have a conference hall, seminar room, digital library, VIP lounge, cafeteria, journalists lounge, car parking, and dormitories | Dhaka TribunePrime Minister and Awami League President Sheikh Hasina will inaugurate the office on 23 Bangabandhu Avenue in Gulistan, said the party’s General Secretary Obaidul Quader.

He said the construction work of the new party office is almost over.

However, sources said the office cannot be used from the inaugural day as the office setup is yet to be completed.

Party sources said the new office building was constructed to include modern facilities, including a conference hall, seminar room, digital library, VIP lounge, cafeteria, journalists lounge, car parking, and dormitories. Also, there will be separate floors for the party president and general secretary.

Of the 10 floors, seven floors will be used for organizational work—where leaders and activists from all units of the party will have separate rooms.

The party chief will sit on the 8th floor while the offices of the general secretary and joint-general secretaries will be situated onthe 7th floor.

There will be a 300-seat conference hall, 100-seat seminar room and a well-equipped research room.  

Earlier, the party planned to inaugurate the office in March but the ceremony was deferred due to a delay in construction work.

The demolition work of the previous Awami League central office started in July 2016.
