Dhaka, 1 October : President Md. Abdul Hamid has given the following message on the occasion of the National Productivity Day-2021.
“I welcome the initiative of National Productivity Organisation (NPO) under the Ministry of Industries to observe the ‘National Productivity Day’.
Productivity is very important for the economic development of a country. There is no alternative to increase productivity for sustainable development and growth. On the auspicious moment of the birth centenary of the great architect of independent Bangladesh, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the Golden Jubilee of Independence, Bangladesh is being considered as a role model of development in the world. Bangladesh is moving forward on the highway of development. In this context, I think the theme of this year’s Productivity Day, ‘Productivity for Irresistible Advancement’ is well thought out and timely.
Productivity is closely related to people’s daily living standard, skills in economic activities, and quality of institutional functions. To attain this, productivity has to be increased in every sector including agriculture, industry and services. The government as well as private industries and service organizations in the country have to come forward in this regard. I firmly believe that the observance of National Productivity Day will facilitate mass people realize the importance of productivity. The government is determined to achieve Vision 2041 and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. We have to increase productivity in every economic sector with a view to achieve the targets. I believe NPO will play an active role in this context.
I wish the observance of ‘National Productivity Day 2021’ a grand success.
Khoda Hafez, May Bangladesh Live Forever.”
