RAJSHAHI, Oct 11, 2018 (BSS) – State Minister for Foreign Affairs Shahriar Alam has said the present government is pledged bound to build a science and technology based education system to take the nation forward.
He said the government under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has been working relentlessly to boost the sector with skilled human resources through improving the standard of education.
The state minister was addressing public meetings on the occasion of inaugurating a three-storied extended building of Monmohini High School. Later, he also addressed foundation laying ceremony of two four-storied buildings in two other high schools in Bagha Upazila of the district yesterday as chief guest.
Department of Education Engineering has been implementing the projects at a total cost of around Taka 7.24 crore.
Upazila Nirbahi Officer Shaheen Reja, Principal of Shahdowllah Degree College Mojammel Haque, Monmohini School Managing Committee President Abdul Matin and local Awami League leaders Ashraful Islam, Shahiduzzaman Shahid, Azizul Alam and Amzad Hossain also spoke on the occasions.
Shahriar Alam said the present government attaches highest priority to the education for boosting the sector with skilled human resources.
He said the country is progressing fast in every sector, especially in improving foreign policy, ICT, food production, power generation and distribution, education, women empowerment, foreign remittance earning, GDP and per capita income.
“We’ve already stepped into that stairs as Bangladesh has been declared a lower middle-income country from the lower-income nation. Bangladesh doesn’t want to stay at the lower ladder… it wants to climb to the peak,” he said.
“We firmly believe that we will soon elevate to the status of middle income country,” he added.
Shahriar said the Awami League government would once again come to power as the people would re-elect the party for continuing the ongoing development spree and improving their living and livelihood condition.
He said whenever the Awami League remains in power the people get the chance of uplifting their socio-economic condition.
