Palak: Once Walton may turn into private Hi-Tech Park

Junaid Ahmed Palak, state minister for Information and Communication Technology, has categorically said the government will consider declaring the Walton Hi-Tech Industries as a private Hi-Tech Park in line with the rules and regulations of the government Hi-Tech Park guidelines.

He also assured Walton of providing it with all privileges of Hi-Tech Park.

The junior minister made the assurance while briefing the media yesterday after visiting different production units of Walton Hi-Tech Industries, especially refrigerator, air conditioner, television and motorcycle units, and the display centre at Chandra in Gazipur.

Palak also inaugurated the Walton’s E-commerce site as the chief guest.

During the inauguration, Walton also presented a video documentation, highlighting production processes of its different products.

In his address, Palak termed Walton Bangladesh’s national pride.

The local company has achieved tremendous popularity at home and abroad by manufacturing world-class consumer-based electronics products, he said.

As Mitsubishi exposed Japan to the tech world and Samsung South Korea, one day Walton will reflect a positive image of Bangladesh in the global market, said the minister.

Making investment in the country’s ICT sector, Walton has set an example before the country’s youth and its successful stories would be followed by other entrepreneurs of this sector, he added.

The local company has already created employment opportunities for about 15,000 people, he said, hoping that it would employ nearly one lakh people by 2021.

He also assured the company that the government would provide all kinds of support for its expansion.

Dwelling on the opening of E-commerce site, Walton Sr. Additional Director (IT) Ariful Ambia said the site was opened so that the buyers can easily purchase Walton products through online without going to the company’s outlets.

In addition, the buyers will also enjoy home delivery services, he said, adding that in future, the company will offer a special discount on the online purchase of its products.

The desired customers would be able to make their online purchase by visiting www.waltonbd.com.
