Quality leadership must for growth

Chairman of The Asian Age and Hon. Consul, The Republic of Malta Shoeb Chowdhury, Associate Editor of The Asian Age Syed Badrul Ahsan and Managing Editor Abdul Mabud PPM received former Home Minister Muhiuddin Khan Alamgir MP at The Asian Age office on Mo

The chairman of the parliamentary standing committee on public accounts and former home minister Muhiuddin Khan Alamgir has said that to develop the country's economic sector it is necessary to utilize and promote an open market economy.     

Muhiuddin Khan Alamgir stated this while exchanging views with senior journalists of The Asian Age yesterday. The view exchange meeting was held at the office of the daily.   The reputed economist said through an open market economy it is possible to develop the country's economy further. Bangla-desh has become strong in the economic sector through the firm determination of the present government. Even so, modernization is needed along the nation's economic parameters.  

The senior leader of the Awami League noted that agricultural economy should be boosted through scientific means. He opined that the country's banking sector should be expanded by a more inclusive system.  He said the government has turned the proverb of Bengalee life being lived on a simple meal of rice and fish into reality. He laid stress on the frozen fish and fish processing system in order for the country to earn more foreign currency.

Muhiuddin Khan Alamgir claimed that he had digitalized passport and e-visa processing, eased visa system with neighboring countries and resolved border problems during his tenure as home minister. The former minister held lethargy on the part of the administration responsible for a failure to attain the desired growth. He also blamed bureaucratic inertia for the absence of guidelines on employment in the budget. He thinks quality leadership is must for economic growth.              

He thinks that it is possible to implement the SDGs given the changes the government is trying to bring about in society.  In order to control loan default and syndication as also single party borrower exposure, the former minister feels that an upgradation of the regulatory framework of the central bank is an imperative.   Muhiuddin Khan Alamgir went around different sections of The Asian Age office and exchanged  greetings with staff of the newspaper.     

He was appreciative of the quality and content of the paper and expressed his hope that it would soon become one of the best newspapers of the country. He gave an exclusive interview which will appear in The Asian Age soon.  The Asian Age Chairman M Shoeb Chowdhury, Associate Editor Syed Badrul Ahsan, Managing Editor Abdul Mabud PPM, former ambassador and writer Prof Neem Chandra Bhowmik and eminent economist M. Shahidul Islam were present on the occasion.
