RAJSHAHI, March 4, 2018 (BSS)-State Minister for Foreign Affairs Shahriar Alam, MP, has said the present government is committed to making the country’s education time-fitting through necessary reforms.
He said the government under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has been working relentlessly to improve the standard of education. Need-based change has been brought to the teachers’ appointment process, he added.
The state minister was addressing the closing ceremony of the 150th founding anniversary celebration of Arani Monmohani High School under Bagha upazila in the district on Saturday as chief guest.
Chaired by principal of Arani Degree College Ashraf Ali, director general of SME Foundation Shafiqul Islam, Engineer Wali Ahad, principal of Shahdowla Degree College Sazzad Hossain, president of Monmohani High School Abdul Matin and college teacher Abdul Matin also spoke.
Shahriar Alam said the present government attaches highest priority to the education as it plays a vital role in boosting the sector of 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.
Now the country has become a rice-exporting instead of importing one, he added.
“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 and we will do whatever necessary for that,” 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.
